Business Debt & Liability

There is a big difference between debts that only your business owes and debts that you (and perhaps your spouse) are personally responsible to repay. Understanding which debts you are personally liable for will help you determine whether to take them on in the first place and how to deal with them if you can't pay them. While deciding not to pay any business debt comes with consequences, not paying some types of debt has worse consequences than not paying others. Knowing which is which is vital to protecting your personal assets.
