SBRA Resources

The Small Business Reorganization Act of 2019 (SBRA), in effect as of February 19, 2020, was enacted to provide Main Street business debtors with a more streamlined path for restructuring their debts. 
 
In response to the economic distress caused by the COVID-19 coronavirus pandemic, the “Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security Act” (CARES Act; P.L. 116-136) was enacted on March 27, 2020, increasing the eligibility limit for small businesses looking to file under SBRA's subchapter V from $2,725,625 of debt to $7,500,000. The threshold was originally scheduled to return to $2,725,625 after 1 year, but was extended to 2022 with the enactment of the "COVID-19 Bankruptcy Relief Extension Act" on March 27, 2021.
