  • 2. Chapter 11 bankruptcy is ideal for corporations which want to continue their operations and at the same time go through reorganization or restructuring of their business to be able to pay creditors and also generate income. There are many advantages of being in chapter 11. Some of them are:
  • 3. Automatic Stay • The debtor benefits from an automatic injunction of all lawsuits, foreclosures, repossessions, bank levies, wage garnishments and other collection activities. • The automatic stay is immensely helpful for debtors who are facing aggressive collection action by creditors, and is the first step in reorganization.
  • 4. Right On Business • The debtor is still given rights on the business. • They will act as a debtor in possession which means that the debtor still have some rights to acquire the earnings of the business but would still prioritize to pay off their debts.
  • 5. Avoidance And Recovery Of Certain Involuntary Transfers • The debtor can avoid and recover certain bank levies, wage garnishments, lien notices, even repossessions of vehicles or equipment that occurred prior to the filing of the bankruptcy.
  • 6. Preservation Of A Going Concern • Debtors that are operating a business can continue business operation in a chapter 11. • The business name, goodwill, and customer base are not lost.
  • 7. No Mean Test • Unlike Chapter 7 and Chapter 13, the means test does not apply to the individual debtors in chapter 11 cases • They may propose repayment plans that are less than five years and therefore, they will end up paying less of their disposable income to unsecured creditors.
  • 8. Temporary Deferral Of Obligations Incurred Pre-petition • Debtors may be able to temporarily defer making certain rent or installment debts.
  • 9. Adjustment Of Interest Rates • Debtors can use the reorganization process to adjust certain interest rates.
  • 10. Reject Contracts • Debtors may be able to "pick and choose" those equipment leases, real estate leases, or other long term (or "executory") contracts they wish to maintain. • Debtors can reject any contract that they believe is not economically profitable.
  • 11. Extend Payment Of Unsecured Tax Debts • Debtors can extend payment of unsecured tax debts for up to five years.
