Small Business Bankruptcy in Texas

July 16th, 2018 at 11:52 am

bankruptcyThe modern business world is tough, especially for smaller firms. If your small business has run into serious financial distress, you are far from alone. Right now, it may be time for your company to review its available options, to work towards shedding or restructuring some of that overly burdensome debt. Bankruptcy is one option that is on the table for your company. However, it is certainly not the only option and it is not always the best option. Here, our experienced San Antonio business bankruptcy attorneys offer tips for weighing whether or not it is time for your small business to file for bankruptcy protection.

Know Your Situation, Know Your Finances

When your business is facing financial distress, it is time to take a very hard look at the books. You need to know your finances, your assets, your debts and your projected future revenue like the back of your hand. Indeed, the key to making the best possible decision is knowing the true financial standing of your company. It is imperative that you enter the debt restructuring process with full knowledge and a clear head.

Always Consider Non-Bankruptcy Options First

Filing for business bankruptcy is a big step. It is neither right nor necessary for every financially distressed Texas small business. Our firm focuses on helping businesses find the best available solution for their individual needs. We always carefully consider all available non-bankruptcy options first. Your company may be able to get back on firm, stable financial footing with a less disruptive method, such as debt consolidation or voluntary debt restructuring. If you go down this road, our attorneys can help you negotiate the terms of these agreements.

Make an Honest Assessment

Finally, small business owners will need to make an honest assessment of the state of their business. While bankruptcy is not the appropriate legal tool for every financially distressed company, it is necessary in many cases. Further, waiting too long to file for bankruptcy may result in your business falling into an even bigger financial hole, making it very difficult to restructure and dig yourself out. The bottom line: If your small business is facing serious financial troubles, you need to take action now. The sooner you address the problem, the better off your company will be.
