A majority of small businesses fail within the first 5 years. Often, it’s due to extenuating circumstances, which can leave the owner/proprietor saddled with debt. If your small business is closing its doors and looking to liquidate, James R. Jones, Attorney at Law can help. Our experience with Chapter 7 business bankruptcy in The Woodlands TX has given us special insight into how to help you.
Understanding Chapter 7 for Small Businesses
In cases where a business owner has no way to pay back small business debt, Chapter 7 liquidation is usually the best course of action. The process involves turning all assets over to a Chapter 7 trustee, where it’s then liquidated to pay back creditors. During this process, the business must cease all operations.
Most small businesses failing to pay their debts are eligible for Chapter 7. It’s best to consult with a qualified business bankruptcy attorney in The Woodlands TX to determine exactly what steps need to be taken in order to initiate and expedite this process.
