Corporate Creditor Proposal Help in New Westminster, BC

Bankruptcy doesn’t have to be the only answer when your company is facing financial challenges. Having the team at J. Bottom & Associates Ltd. help with a corporate proposal allows you to make an arrangement with your creditors and prevents you from filing for bankruptcy. This provision under the Bankruptcy and Insolvency Act helps convince your creditors to take a lesser amount of money over time to allow your business to continue operating. Since there would be no money available to them if you go into bankruptcy, creditors tend to find this option more appealing. We can also assist with a Notice of Intention to File a Proposal to halt the proceedings. This gives us more time to help you from filing bankruptcy and go over your financials to propose a plan for repayment.

How Does a Company Get into Bankruptcy?

There are many steps a company can take to get themselves into financial challenges. While it may seem like a total loss, there are many advantages and gains you can receive by filing for bankruptcy when looking to rebuild and restructure your company into something better. Some of the ways you can enter bankruptcy include:

Voluntary Assignment: The most common form of going into bankruptcy. Through this method, you will assign your business’ assets on your own accord for the benefit of your creditors. Your business would also become insolvent.

Creditor Initiation: Also known as an involuntary assignment, your creditors file a petition to seize your assets in a provincial court. They will have to prove your company has committed an act of bankruptcy within the past six months.

Unable to Comply with a Division I Proposal: If you have developed a resurrection plan, but it is voted down in a Division I Proposal, your business will be placed into bankruptcy. It could also happen if it does not receive the initial court approval.
