No two businesses or debt profiles are exactly alike, you know?

Breaking Down Business Debt Settlement

If you’re unfamiliar with the debt settlement process, no worries! Let‘s do a quick overview so you understand how it works.The goal of debt settlement is straightforward – to resolve your outstanding business debt for less than you currently owe. This usually involves some back and forth negotiation with your creditors to agree on a reduced lump sum payment.But before negotiations even start, there‘s a few key steps:

1. Review your debt and budgetFirst, we‘ll take a close look at all your business debt and monthly finances. This helps us understand how much wiggle room there might be to offer settlements.

2. Open a dedicated savings accountWe’ll then have you open a new bank account that’s solely focused on saving up for settlement offers. Each month, you’ll deposit an agreed amount into this account instead of paying creditors.

3. Stop payments to creditorsWith the new savings plan in place, you‘ll stop making monthly payments to creditors altogether. This is key leverage for negotiating discounts later. Just be aware that missed payments can negatively impact credit scores and lead to more collection calls in the short term.

4. Negotiate discountsOnce enough funds have accumulated to put reasonable “good faith” offers on the table, we start settlement negotiations. The whole process usually takes around 24-48 months from start to finish. Geddit? It ain’t exactly a quick fix.But if all goes smoothly, you could resolve debts for 30, 40, sometimes even 50% less than you owe. Just depends on the creditors.And you know what? A lot of times, just having a professional negotiator handle all this stuff reduces stress big time.

The Benefits of Debt Settlement for Business Owners

Assuming you can stick to the savings plan and let the process play out, debt settlement offers a few compelling benefits:

Get debt free faster – By resolving balances at a discount instead of paying in full over time, you can eliminate debt years earlier.

Pay less overall – Those reduced lump sum settlements also mean spending less money to get debt free. It’s a win-win.

Lower monthly bills – Not having to keep up with credit card and loan payments every month lets you breathe and focus on business growth.

Avoid bankruptcy – Settling debt out of court keeps your business running and usually doesn’t hurt personal credit scores as much.But debt settlement does come with some risks to consider too. Missed payments while saving up for settlements can tank business credit reports. Lawsuits from creditors are also possible in some cases.An experienced debt relief team knows how to navigate these risks though. And for many business owners, the potential rewards make taking some calculated chances worth it.

What About Merchant Cash Advance Relief?

If you‘ve gotten a merchant cash advance (MCA) to help cover operating expenses during COVID or supply chain issues, you may be in a tight spot. MCA’s can have repayment rates of 100-200% in some cases. Yikes!The good news? The debt relief process works much the same with these products. The main difference is MCA’s are technically “future sales” and not loans. So negotiating strategy might vary depending on the agreement terms.Our legal network has experience dealing with all kinds of tricky finance products like merchant cash advances though. We know what to look out for and how to approach the conversations.So if you got an MCA with crazy repayment terms, don’t panic. Let’s have a chat and explore ways we might be able to help!
