Symptoms of Business Financial Problems

While all small businesses are unique, many of the problems encountered by Connecticut’s small business owners have a pattern and a common solution.  Every business is special and different, but there are common symptoms and common solutions to financial issues faced by business owners.  To experienced business lawyers, these problems are discernable and fixable.  If so-called “business lenders” are seeking out your company, you need to get educated before you make bad decisions and take on more unmanageable debt.  These companies are actually soliciting you because it’s good for them, and not good for you or your small business.

Business problems usually begin small.  In many cases, the first symptom of business financial problems is increased borrowings from consumer credit cards, business credit cards, credit lines, and other forms of business and personal high-interest borrowing.  Ultimately, these practices lead to unmanageable monthly payments, and no pay for you. Often you will experience a serious downturn in any ability to take home a personal paycheck, as business expenses exceed business income.

All small business owners know the feeling of being the last to be paid, and sometimes this means no pay at all.  The result of this cycle is personal debt, decreased house equity, pension liquidation and other permanent problems that are avoidable with the assistance of experienced attorneys who know the special problems faced by small businesses in Connecticut.

Symptoms of Business Financial Problems:

  • Borrowing from high-interest personal and business credit cards
  • Inability to reduce debt obligations
  • Inability to service debt obligations, resulting in late fees
  • Increasing time spent dealing with creditor issues
  • Phone calls from creditors
  • Using personal credit lines and your house or pension to put money into your business
  • Lack of a paycheck for you
  • Late payments and default on household bills


Increasing debt burdens are one of the leading reasons that small businesses fail.  Profitability disappears slowly, personal revenues begin to diminish and business owners take on more and more debt in an attempt to save the business through credit burdens they hope to pay off shortly.  This debt service reduces profits, and when profits do not return, the debt load quickly becomes overwhelming.

With experienced counsel, the most overwhelming business problems can be solved on the business and personal level without any loss of assets or business interruption.

Rather than waiting until it is too late or allowing high-interest debt to ruin your business, seek experienced counsel from knowledgeable bankruptcy attorneys.  We have a multitude of options to improve your business by reducing debt service outside of bankruptcy, in Chapter 11 small business bankruptcy, and even in filing personal bankruptcy through Chapter 7 or Chapter 13.
