Failure to file correctly with these new forms may have an adverse effect on your Chapter 11 case.

Important new procedures went into effect on June 21 — are you prepared?

Every Chapter 11 debtor-in-possession or trustee must file a Monthly Operating Report, which provides vital information about the case to the Court, the United States Trustee and other parties-in-interest. 

On December 21, 2020, the United States Trustee Program published a final rule in the Federal Register regarding new streamlined, data-embedded forms governing the filing of pre-confirmation monthly operating reports (MORs) and quarterly post-confirmation reports (PCRs) by all debtors except those who are small businesses or who, in accordance with the CARES Act, elect relief under subchapter V of chapter 11.

Those new forms went into effect on June 21, 2021. The first MORs filed under the new rule are expected to cover June 1, 2021 through June 30, 20021 and should be filed on or before July 21, 2021.

Engage with USTP offices to learn more about the new forms and how to remain compliant.

Join US Trustee personnel for the Eastern, Western and Middle Districts of Pennsylvania and the District of Delaware for this practice guide that will emphasize changes to applicable filing and service requirements for the new MORs and PCRs.
