Subchapter V

Subchapter V Attorney in Irvine, California

We Help Small Business Owners Settle Their Debt

The Small Business Reorganization Act of 2019 is a relatively new piece of legislation that adds Subchapter V to the United States Bankruptcy Code. What it does is allow small businesses to restructure their debt much as they would in Chapter 11 but benefit from a streamlined process.

Key provisions of Subchapter V include:

  • No disclosure statement is required
  • No formal committee of creditors needed
  • Creditors lack a formal vote to approve or reject a plan
  • A “fair and equitable” plan can be one that pays disposable income to a creditor during a three to five-year period
  • A Subchapter V trustee does not take control of debtor’s assets or control their business

If you’re a small business owner looking to relieve yourself from mounting debt, consider speaking with a Subchapter V attorney in Orange County about your options in this new bankruptcy process. At Financial Relief Law Center, APC, we are well versed in all bankruptcy matters regardless of how recent they may be. We can help your small business release all or most of its secured and unsecured debt by working on a personalized Subchapter V repayment plan for your company. 

How Does a Business Qualify for Subchapter V Bankruptcy?

If the provisions provided in Subchapter V sound like a promising prospect to ease your company through a Chapter 11-like type of bankruptcy, you may be wondering how you can qualify. As legislation was originally passed in August 2019, small business owners in Orange County with no greater than $2,725,625 of secured and unsecured debt could file for Subchapter V.

How the CARES Act Applies to Subchapter V

In response to a worldwide pandemic that began to affect the U.S. on a mass scale by early March 2020, state governments enacted stay-at-home orders that forced certain “non-essential” businesses to close or have their revenues impacted by a sharp decline in business.

Signed into law in late March 2020, the Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security (CARES) Act provided economic relief that included an increase in the debt threshold for Subchapter V by nearly double. As a result, business owners exploring their options in Subchapter V bankruptcy can owe as much as $7.5 million to qualify until March 27, 2021.

Due to an anticipated increase in filings, however, it’s important to have a capable Subchapter V attorney who can help you move throughout the process by clearing as many hurdles as possible. Financial Relief Law Center, APC’s attorneys focus our firm on bankruptcy services of all kinds, and we are well versed in the Subchapter V process. We can walk you through each step so you can feel more confident that your chance of achieving the best possible result is secure.
