SBRA Resources

The following is intended to be a collection of helpful resources for attorneys involved in subchapter V cases. The Bankruptcy Administrator cannot give legal advice, and none of the resources provided here are intended as such. Check back for updates. 

The Small Business Reorganization Act of 2019(link is external) (the "SBRA"), signed into law on August 23, 2019, enacts a new subchapter V of chapter 11 of the Bankruptcy Code, codified as 11 U.S.C. §§ 1181-1195, and makes conforming amendments to several sections of the Bankruptcy Code.

The Coronavirus Aid, Relief and Economic Security (CARES) Act(link is external) signed into law on March 27, 2020, amends the definition of "small business debtor" to expand access to the recently enacted SBRA for cases filed on or after the enactment of the CARES Act. Specifically, the CARES Act amends 11 U.S.C. § 1182(1) so that persons and businesses with not more than $7,500,000 in aggregate non-contingent liquidated secured and unsecured debts are generally able to proceed under subchapter V of chapter 11. These provisions of the CARES Act will sunset 1 year after the date of enactment.
