Is Corporate Bankruptcy the Right Choice for Your Edmonton Business?

Filing for bankruptcy is never an easy decision. There are many important things to consider and whatever decision you make, you’ll have to live with both positive and negative consequences. Keep reading to learn more about corporate bankruptcy in Edmonton and whether or not it’s right for you.

How is Corporate Bankruptcy Different than Personal Bankruptcy? 

When your business is incorporated, your business assets are considered separate from your personal assets. So, if your incorporated business is facing financial difficulty, you would need to file for a business bankruptcy. If you’re set up as a sole proprietorship, then you would simply file for personal bankruptcy because there is no separation between your personal assets and your business assets.

What Happens When You File for Corporate Bankruptcy?

You can expect both positive and negative outcomes when your business files for bankruptcy. Some of the negative outcomes you should be aware of are:

  • Expense - There are legal fees attached to filing as well as payments that need to be made for a specified period of time before you’re released from the bankruptcy. In some cases, bankruptcy can be quite expensive.
  • Negative impact on your credit - There are certain types of business debt that you, as the owner of the business, will have to take personal responsibility for, especially if you offered your lending institution a personal guarantee. These debts can affect your personal credit rating even if you’re an incorporated enterprise.
  • Loss of assets - Depending on the amount of assets that you own and the amount of debt that you’re carrying, you may lose your non-exempt assets. These will be sold and the funds will be used to pay your creditors.
