Baltimore Business Debt Settlement FAQs

Handling business debt can spur many legal questions. Here are answers to some frequently asked questions about business debt settlement in Baltimore:**Can business debt settlement hurt my credit?**Debt settlement often involves stopping payments, which can negatively impact your business credit reports and scores. However, resolving debts through settlement can start rebuilding your credit over time. We advise on strategies to mitigate credit damage where possible.

What are the tax implications of business debt settlement?Settled debt could be considered taxable income by the IRS. Our lawyers help craft settlement agreements to argue the released debt should not be taxed. We also advise on options if the cancelled debt is ultimately taxed.**Can I negotiate business debt settlement myself?

**You can try negotiating directly with creditors, but the process is often complex legally. Our business debt lawyers have the expertise and experience to negotiate optimal settlements and properly document agreements. We provide peace of mind that your interests are protected.

**What debts can you settle for a business?

**Many types of business debt can potentially be settled, including balances due to suppliers, service providers, equipment leases, bank loans, and business credit cards. Our lawyers help assess which of your debts are best suited for settlement.

How long does business debt settlement take?The settlement process duration varies case-by-case based on factors like amount owed and creditor willingness to negotiate. Most of our business debt settlements take between 3-9 months from start to finish. We strive to resolve debts efficiently while optimizing settlements.

Baltimore Merchant Cash Advance FAQs

Merchant cash advances have many nuances as a financing option. Here are some common legal questions we receive:

**What happens if I default on a merchant cash advance?**Defaulting allows the MCA provider to withdraw the full buyout amount from your future sales. This amount is often much higher than the original advance. Default also damages your business credit. We advise on default prevention and defend against provider collection lawsuits as needed.

Can you negotiate merchant cash advance terms?The specific MCA rates and repayment terms depend on factors like your credit, time in business, and sales history. Our lawyers review your offers and frequently negotiate improved rates and repayment structures when possible.

**Are merchant cash advances considered loans?

**No, merchant cash advances are not loans. With an MCA, you sell a portion of future credit card sales rather than borrowing money and paying interest. However, complex legal issues can still apply related to repayment and collections.**What legal protections exist around merchant cash advances?

**Maryland laws provide some consumer protections but minimal guidance related explicitly to merchant cash advances. However, case law in other states related to issues like rates and collections applies. Our lawyers stay up to date on all MCA laws and precedents.**Should I work with a lawyer for a merchant cash advance?

**Yes, having an attorney review any MCA offer is highly recommended. We help explain all legal implications around rates, repayment, defaults, and more.
