$1,200,000 SBA 7A LOAN - SBA OHA LITIGATION

$1,200,000 SBA 7A LOAN - SBA OHA LITIGATION

Client personally guaranteed an SBA 7(a) loan to help with a relative’s new business venture.  After the business failed, Treasury was able to secure a recurring Treasury Offset Program (TOP) levy against our client’s monthly Social Security Benefits based on the claim that he owed over $1.2 million dollars.  We initially submitted a Cross-Servicing Dispute, but then, prepared and filed an Appeals Petition with the SBA Office of Hearings and Appeals (SBA OHA).  As a result of our efforts, we were able to convince the SBA to not only terminate the claimed debt of $1.2 million dollars against our client (without him having to file bankruptcy), but also refund the past recurring amounts that were offset from his Social Security Benefits in connection with the TOP levy.

What is SBA's Policy Regarding Charge Off Accounts?
What is SBA's Policy Regarding Charge Off Accounts?

Charge off is the process by which the SBA recognizes a loss and removes the uncollectible loan account from its active receivable accounts. The SBA’s policy is to be diligent and thorough in collection of federal debt and to promptly charge off all uncollectible accounts to more accurately reflect the status of the individual account and the Agency’s entire portfolio. It should be noted that a charge off is merely an administrative determination that does NOT affect SBA’s rights against any obligor nor reduce the SBA’s (or a participant lender’s) ability to proceed with any available remedy.

What are the criteria for a business to file under Subchapter V?
What are the criteria for a business to file under Subchapter V?

To be eligible for this option, a debtor must meet the following criteria:

  • Engaged in commercial activity
  • Total debts must be less than $2,725,725 (both secured and unsecured)
  • At least half of the debts must be due to business activity
  • The principal activity is not a single-asset real estate operation

The CARES Act further expanded the eligibility for businesses to qualify under this bankruptcy path.

This legislation increases the eligibility pool to also include companies with up to $7,500,000 in debt (both secured and unsecured) to reorganize under Subchapter V. This is a significant increase from the otherwise limit of $2,725,625.

What is the timeline for a Subchapter V?
What is the timeline for a Subchapter V?

Subchapter V debtors must file their reorganization plan within 90 days of entering bankruptcy.

If the debtor cannot commit to a reorganization plan within 90 days, the debtor may file an extension plea. The bankruptcy court decides on whether to approve or deny the extension plea.

Approval of the plan will depend on whether any creditors object and the court's own calendar.

Is there a creditor committee in a Subchapter V?
Is there a creditor committee in a Subchapter V?

Creditors' committees commonly occur in traditional Chapter 11 cases, but they need a cause in Subchapter V cases.

Subchapter V trustees' primary function is to create a standard plan with the debtor and creditor. They do have the authority to audit the debtor's finances, but their primary purpose is mediation.

The reason for this is Congress sees impartial third-parties' increasing the likelihood of a sound resolution among the debtor and its creditors. Unbiased third parties are especially useful for small businesses whose creditors are tentative as a result of COVID.
