Houston Small Businesses Face Uncertain Futures after Hurricane Harvey

Hurricane Harvey hit Houston with a vengeance, leaving behind overwhelming flooding and destruction. While much focus has rightfully been on families who lost their homes, another concern is the future of small businesses in the Houston area. One news source estimated that 99 percent of companies in the city were categorized as small businesses, and affected owners all have a rocky road ahead of them.
Large corporations, including medical or oil companies and big box retail chains, have the capital to not only make necessary repairs in a timely manner but also to absorb losses caused by the flooding. On the other hand, most small businesses do not have huge reserves of cash to help rebuild, especially with an interruption in operations. However, most small business owners do have one important characteristicdetermination. The same determination that helped them start their own enterprises can now help them recover after this disaster.
  • Assessing Damage and Covering Costs
  • Harvey caused damage to small businesses in many ways, including:
  • Physical damage to brick-and-mortar locations
  • Lack of a workforce if employees cannot make it into work
  • Disconnection with suppliers and vendors who cannot make deliveries
  • Loss of clients as the public is also struggling with serious losses
  • Falling behind on payroll or other obligations
While no one-size-fits-all solution will rebuild all small businesses after the hurricane, different solutions can help. One is to seek any funding assistance for repairs, including low-interest loans offered by the Small Business Administration (SBA) or benefits from flood insurance if your business was fortunate enough to have coverage.
In addition, you might continue as many operations as possible remotely or with a skeleton crew if you lack employees. Scaled-back operations are better than none. If you work in an industry that can contribute to repairs around the Houston area, mobilize as fast as possible to book as many jobs as you can. For your own location, do the minimum amount of repairs up-front to get running again and complete additional repairs over time.
If you do not feel like rebuilding is financially viable for your business, it is important tounderstand how to properly dissolve your business. A disaster is not an excuse to ignore any previous ownership agreements, and you should always discuss your situation with an experienced business lawyer before taking action to close your business.
