Chapter 11 Bankruptcy Protection for Business

Technically speaking, a business cannot apply for chapter 13 bankruptcy, but the similar Chapter 11, Title 11 of the United States Bankruptcy Code applies to every business, be it a corporation, partnership or sole proprietorship. If your business plans haven’t panned out as expected and you’re facing insurmountable debt, you could file for Chapter 11 to reorganize and save your business assets.
