What is a Chapter 11(v) Bankruptcy?


In the new year, businesses in debt will have new options to help keep the doors open and get debt relief. Last month, President Trump signed a bi-partisan bill into law that amends Chapter 11 of the bankruptcy code to allow businesses with less than $2.7 million in debt to file a special reorganization plan, which will be known as a Chapter 11(V). Until now, a business’s only option was to file either a regular Chapter 11, which can be costly, or file a more affordable Chapter 7, which requires them to close up shop.
A Chapter 11(V) is a more affordable solution because the bankruptcy estate is administered by a standing trustee, similar to a consumer Chapter 13 case. Additionally, there is no creditors’ committee, which makes the case less complex. The new law takes effect in February 2020.
