Commercial Proposal and Commercial Bankruptcy in Montreal

Redress Your Business Finances

What is a commercial proposal?

The commercial proposal is a useful solution whereby your company can maintain operations while redressing its finances. The proposal also provides legal protection against creditors’ actions.

The commercial proposal is actually an offer to your creditors to either reduce the amount of your debt or extend the repayment period. This option offers several advantages, including protecting your business against seizure and stopping interest on debt.

The Commercial Proposal

A commercial proposal consists in pointing out the reason for the insolvency in order to present the most adequate solution. The adoption of that solution is subjected to a vote at the creditors’ assembly. If the creditors vote in favour on the dollar, equating 67% of the amount and representing a numerical majority, the proposal is accepted. Thereby, bankruptcy occurs only if the proposal is rejected.
