The Bankruptcy Abuse Prevention and Consumer Protection Act of 2005, which was signed into law in April 2005, is the biggest rewrite of the Bankruptcy Code since it was enacted in 1978. The new Act made important changes in small business bankruptcy requirements, especially in the timing deadlines and reporting process.
