Debt Solutions for Businesses in BC

  • If you are a sole proprietor, this means that your business debts are essentially your personal debts. Filing a Consumer Proposal, or a personal bankruptcy may be possible solutions to deal with your business and personal debts.
  • Owners and directors of corporations (limited companies) can manage their business debts using a Business Proposal, or alternatively, a business bankruptcy.
    • Many owners do not want to have their business file for bankruptcy – a Business Proposal can be a solution to avoid a business bankruptcy.
  • In a Business Proposal, a Licensed Insolvency Trustee will work with the business owner to offer the business creditors a consolidated debt settlement that can greatly reduce the business debt.

Business finances are often intertwined with the personal financial affairs of owners and directors, which can create unintended personal consequences for business owners. A Licensed Insolvency Trustee can explain how business debts affect an individual, and help you and your business get out of debt.
