I have been running a company for 7 years and as you can imagine it used to be great before the recession and then when the economy fell apart alot of my credit did too. Even though things seem to be better now we have several charge offs and accounts in collection. The old company name really doesn't serve us anymore as we have kind of switched directions so we are thinking about starting a new corp, moving everything into that and then either letting the old one die off or closing it.
I am not asking for legal advice but am wondering if anyone else did this and will creditors from the old company try to hassle you as the new corp. Also is there any reason you cannot start a new corp at the same address, under a new name and start over or will there be a problem because the old corp still exits. Likewise will getting new credit be affected by the old company, that is non-PG'd credit, as we really dont need credit at this time but I would like to start clean.
We are in New York in case that matters.
Any ideas or advice or personal experience (even from people not in NY) would be appreciated.
