Missouri Merchant Cash Advance Lawyers and Business Debt Relief

Running a small business is tough, especially when it comes to managing finances. If you’re a business owner in Missouri struggling with debt, you’re not alone. We at Delancey Street understand the unique financial challenges that small business owners face. That‘s why we’ve put together a team of experts – including lawyers – who can provide tailored debt relief solutions.

Overview of Merchant Cash Advances

A merchant cash advance (MCA) is a form of business financing where a company purchases a portion of your future sales. You receive a lump sum upfront, and the MCA provider takes a fixed percentage of your daily credit card sales until the balance has been repaid (plus fees and interest).MCAs can be easy to qualify for, but the costs can really add up. The annual percentage rates often exceed 50% or even 100%. If your business has slow periods, you may struggle to make the daily payments. This can lead to a crushing cycle of debt.

Common MCA Issues We See

We’ve helped numerous business owners who have run into issues with their merchant cash advances, including:

  • Excessively high payments that become unmanageable
  • Ballooning balances due to fees and interest
  • Harassment from MCA providers trying to collect
  • Potential bankruptcy if unable to keep up with payments

Many business owners feel embarrassed or ashamed when they run into these kinds of financial issues. But again – you‘re not alone, and there are solutions available.

How Can a Lawyer Help?

If you’re struggling with an overwhelming MCA, the first step is accepting that you need help. We know that can be easier said than done when you’re focused on keeping your business afloat.The good news is there are lawyers who specialize in helping small business owners in financial distress. With an experienced attorney on your side, you can better understand your rights and options.Here are some of the ways a lawyer can help with MCA debt:

Negotiating a Settlement

An attorney can negotiate directly with your MCA provider to try and settle your balance for less than you owe. This can relieve some of the financial pressure and allow you to move forward.For example, in one recent case an attorney was able to settle a $58,000 MCA balance for just $22,000 – saving their client over $35,000.

Fixing Unfair MCA Agreements

Some MCA contracts include language that is grossly unfair or even illegal. A lawyer can review your agreements to see if any terms can be invalidated or changed.For instance, in another case an attorney found that their client‘s MCA contract violated state laws around interest rates and loan transparency. They were able to get the agreement adjusted to reduce payments by over 20%.

Dealing with Harassment & Improper Collections Practices

It’s against federal law for MCA providers to engage in harassing, abusive, or deceptive collection tactics. However, some still try to bully business owners by:

  • Making excessive daily calls
  • Threatening legal action they have no basis for
  • Misrepresenting the terms of the MCA agreement

Your lawyer can put a stop to this illegal harassment. They can also sue the MCA provider if needed for breaking debt collection laws.

Exploring Bankruptcy Protection

While bankruptcy should be an option of last resort, it can provide relief if you simply have no way to pay off your MCA debt. Your lawyer will explain if and how bankruptcy may help your specific situation.The important thing is that you have an advocate to understand all your options. You don’t have to keep struggling with MCA debt alone.
