Chapter 7 Bankruptcy for Business

When a business has serious financial problems and is unable to service its debt it may file for (or be forced to file by creditors) chapter 7 bankruptcy for business.  Chapter 7 is used to liquidate a business by liquidating its assets and distributing the proceeds to its creditors to satisfy the debts. 

After the bankruptcy the business ceases operations and the owners owe nothing further to the creditors.  However, if the business is a corporation remaining debts after liquidation are not discharged but remain as obligations as long as the corporation exists.

Employees of a business will generally lose their jobs unless the business has entire division(s) that were sold to other businesses during the liquidation process.

Secured creditors such as bondholders or banks with secured assets have a priority claim to liquidated proceeds over unsecured creditors such as vendors and suppliers.
