Small business help is on the way. Earlier this month the Small Business Reorganization Act was passed and signed into law. This law makes it easier, faster, and cheaper for small businesses to reorganize under the bankruptcy code. With these new tools more businesses will qualify for a fresh start. A few key points of the new law are:
- A mortgage on a principal residence can be modified, if the funds from the mortgage were used in connection with the Debtor’s business;
- A Plan is to be filed within 90 days of filing; and
- The Debtor does not need the support of any class of creditors.
