Protecting a business from having to file for bankruptcy

When a company realizes that its financial situation will no longer allow the support of organizational processes, they may be considering alternatives to get rid of the debt. Unfortunately, if they have exhausted all other efforts, their only option left may be to file for bankruptcy in New Jersey. However, these types of situations can usually be prevented when company leaders take the initiative to strategically and wisely manage their finances. 

Are your personal assets at risk in a business bankruptcy?

If your New Jersey small business is struggling financially, you may wonder if filing for bankruptcy is a wise decision, or, more to the point, if filing for bankruptcy would jeopardize your personal assets. Intuit QuickBooks explores circumstances in which your assets may be at risk and what you can do to protect them in the event that your business defaults.

When a company is facing an uncertain financial future, they have a couple of options to consider in revitalizing their structure and recovering from the restraints of debt. Struggling companies in New Jersey may be able to develop a plan for consolidating their debt, renegotiate contracts with creditors to extend their payment period or file for bankruptcy to try and recover as many of their assets as possible. 

How does Chapter 11 differ for a small business?

Chapter 11 bankruptcy is reserved for businesses. It is a restructuring of debt. While all sizes of businesses can file under the chapter, things may be different for a small business than for a larger one. One of the important parts of Chapter 11, according to the U.S. Courts, is the creditors' committees. This committee is a group of the seven largest unsecured creditors. They investigate your business and finances and help to formulate the bankruptcy plan.
