On 27 September 2013, Law 14/2013 on support to the internationalization of business was approved (Spanish Official Gazette of September 28). From its entry into force on October 18, the procedure for out-of-court settlement of payments will be implemented, which is a new mechanism of debt renegotiation prior to the declaration of insolvency and an alternative to the so-called “pre-insolvency”, aimed at individual entrepreneurs, freelancers and small and medium-sized businesses that have not yet been declared insolvent whose assets and liabilities meet certain requirements. The change in the law seeks to promote out-of-court solutions for minor restructuring cases, admitting the exoneration of debts and transfer in payment of debts in certain cases.
