Small Business Liquidation
In Chapter 7 bankruptcy, a trustee is appointed to handle the liquidation of assets. Non-exempt property and collateral will likely be sold to pay the business’s creditors. This can include secured debts such as vehicle or equipment loans. Some tools of the trade, however, are exempt.
When a small business files Chapter 7, it may benefit from:
- The discharge of some of its debts
- Sole proprietors discharged from personal obligations to the business’s debt
- The elimination of leases
Another benefit of bankruptcy is the automatic stay of collection activities. Businesses, officers of corporations and individuals receive the protection of the automatic stay provided by bankruptcy. The automatic stay prevents creditor harassment, phone calls and all other collection actions while the bankruptcy is in progress.
