For many small businesses, simply being able to put a temporary halt to the necessity of paying debts can be the sort of reinvigoration that the small business may need to be able to rebound. In Chapter 11 bankruptcy, there is a several-month period during which the exact reorganization of the debt is accomplished.

During Chapter 11 a small business and/or its owner/s becomes a debtor in possession and acts as the business' trustee. This type of bankruptcy also allows a business owner to remain in control of the business during the process. This can be a great advantage as your business will continue to have someone who is intimately familiar with it making key decisions. If you wish to remain in business and if your total debt exceeds Chapter 13 limits, a small business Chapter 11 filing can be the answer. The current debt limits in Chapter 13 cases are: noncontingent, liquidated, unsecured debts of less than $336,900 and noncontingent, liquidated, secured debts of less than $1,010,650.

As a general rule, a "small business debtor" for Chapter 11 purposes means " a person engaged in commercial or business activities . . . that has aggregate noncontingent liquidated secured and unsecured debts as of the date of the petition or the date of the order for relief in an amount of not more than $ 2,000,000..."
