What Is Chapter 11 Bankruptcy?

The Chapter 11 business bankruptcy code was designed to give businesses an opportunity to reflect on their current financial situation, develop a plan of reorganization, and emerge from bankruptcy in a more financially viable state.

When Should I File for Chapter 11 Bankruptcy?

However, when to file for Chapter 11 business bankruptcy is a serious decision that requires a thorough understanding of the effects on a business entity. If you are considering bankruptcy for your business, a Chapter 11 filing may give you the necessary financial flexibility to move ahead. Corporations, and Sole proprietorships Partnerships are types of business entities can file for Chapter 11 bankruptcy.

What Happens After Chapter 11?

After you file for Chapter 11 bankruptcy, the federal bankruptcy court must accept it. When it is accepted, an automatic stay is triggered, which means that any creditor actions to collect debts will be stopped. This includes requests for payment, foreclosure, repossession, lawsuits, and even evictions. The automatic stay will last until your Chapter 11 case is completed, though in some circumstances the bankruptcy court may lift it if a creditor requests it.

In addition to the automatic stay, the business will be considered a “debtor in possession” which means that it will keep control of its assets while Chapter 11 is still going. This means that you will be in charge of taking on the role of a bankruptcy trustee. At this point, there will be options you can take in order to keep your organization afloat during bankruptcy.

The most important part of Chapter 11 is the reorganization or repayment plan. Similar to Chapter 13, You must create a plan and propose how much you will pay the creditors. Then, you will attend a meeting of creditors and your creditors may submit modifications to the plan. This part may take the longest because there is plenty of back-and-forth in communication. It is possible that during this process, creditors will agree to be repaid less than what was originally due.

Finally, creditors will get to vote on the plan -- if two-thirds of them accept it, then the bankruptcy court confirms it. This means the debts are considered “discharged” and are then replaced by debts that are confirmed by the court. The business must make payments according to the final reorganization plan.
