Fort Walton Beach, Fla. – On February 19th, 2020, the Small Business Reorganization Act (the “SBRA”) officially went into effect. This came just before the onset of the coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak and along with the order from the governor to delay foreclosures, may be the saving grace small businesses in the state of Florida need to weather the pandemic storm. The SBRA act helps small businesses by putting in place practices that divert some of the large cost of filing for Chapter 11 bankruptcy. Lewis and Jurnovoy, a Fort Walton Beach bankruptcy attorney, is highlighting key concepts of the new SBRA act.

The new act can be used by any business that has liquidated debts not exceeding $2,725,625. This number, however, has been increased to $7,500,000 for the next year as the nation recovers from COVID-19. SBRA eliminates a few key costly elements of Chapter 11 for businesses that qualify. This includes eliminating the fees charged by the United States Trustee, the need for an Officially Committee made up of Unsecured Collectors, and the need for a disclosure statement.

The SBRA act also sets limits for the disposable income that funds the plan set up by the business. The plan can be no less than three years and no longer than five years’ worth of disposable income for the business. The new act came just in the nick of time for small businesses around the country and will greatly impact the small businesses in the state of Florida.
