If you are struggling to keep your New Jersey or Pennsylvania business going because you are feeling the stress of mounting debt, it may be in your best interests to file for Chapter 11 bankruptcy and seek a discharge of your business-related debts. Depending on your unique circumstances, you may qualify for reorganization under Chapter 11.

Chapter 11, also known as “reorganization bankruptcy,” gives small business owners the chance to reorganize their debts and work out a plan to keep creditors happy while also allowing the business to remain operational. If you are a small business owner who just needs a little time to figure things out as you keep the business running, Chapter 11 bankruptcy is a potentially quite a beneficial option for you.

On the other hand, if you intend to go out of business, then filing for Chapter 11 can help you effectively liquidate your debts and quickly move on to bigger and better things with your life.

To get an idea of your potential options and to learn more about what a Chapter 11 bankruptcy filing might mean for you and your small business, take a look at the following pages:

  • Chapter 11: Chapter 11 bankruptcy is a commercial bankruptcy option typically utilized by small business owners looking to restructure their debts and avoid shutting down the company.
  • Chapter 7: A sole proprietor may have the option of filing for Chapter 7 bankruptcy and discharging both personal and business debts.
  • Chapter 13: Although only individuals are permitted to file for Chapter 13 bankruptcy, sole proprietors can potentially utilize Chapter 13 to arrange a repayment plan while protecting their business assets.
  • Bankruptcy and Business Taxes: Small business owners who fall behind on their quarterly tax requirements due to financial struggles may be able to get extra time to pay off the IRS and meet their tax obligations.
  • Business Bankruptcy and Alternatives: Financially distressed businesses may have alternatives to filing for bankruptcy, including dealing directly with creditors or liquidating the business.
