Subchapter V provides small businesses with a number of benefits that were not previously available in Chapter 11 bankruptcy cases, including:

  • Allows equity owners to retain their interest in the business without paying creditors in full,

  • Allows a plan to be confirmed without the consent of any creditors,

  • No US Trustee Payments

  • A Subchapter V Trustee to help facilitate a plan of reorganization

  • Extending the time to pay certain administrative claims.
