Facts About Business Chapter 7 Bankruptcy

When a business files for Chapter 7 bankruptcy, the bankruptcy court appoints a Chapter 7 trustee to liquidate the business's assets and distribute the proceeds to the business's creditors. After this process is complete, the business ceases to exist and so do its debts.

Even though Chapter 7 bankruptcy means the business has to close down, it does have advantages. It signals the end of operation of the business, and creditors will no longer be able to undertake collection or litigation against the business.

Other Bankruptcy Options

A business facing bankruptcy can file for Chapter 7, Chapter 11 or Chapter 13 bankruptcy. Chapter 7 is the only option that involves forfeiting all of the business assets to creditors. Other forms of bankruptcy allow you to restructure your business, pay back all or part of your debt and keep the business in operation.
