Reorganizing Your Business Debts During a Global Crisis
If you are facing astronomical debts with a complete loss of customers during this COVID-19 crisis, you are not alone. Almost every industry in the United States has been negatively affected. While we are all in this together, the truth is that some businesses may not survive financially, and will have to shutter their doors permanently. However, if you take careful steps now, your business may be able to avoid the dangerous financial pitfalls awaiting several business owners, and create a path through which your business will survive to be profitable again.
Reorganize Your Debt
Many business owners fear bankruptcy and are unwilling to consider it as a possibility. But, in the time of a global pandemic, all options should be on the table. A Chapter 11 bankruptcy is also known as a “reorganization” bankruptcy. This type of bankruptcy allows an employer to stay in business as they reorganize their debts. If you are facing substantial debts, your first plan of action should be to visit with an experienced attorney to help you understand how you can possibly deal with your landlord, mortgage company, or other creditors. If you believe you will be unable to pay these creditors due to the COVID-19 virus eliminating your business income and profit, you may want to consider Chapter 11 bankruptcy. Again, visiting with an experienced bankruptcy attorney can help you make the best decision for your unique financial situation.
