Halacha - Pruzbul
Submitted by Yaakov Rosenes  Answered by Rav Peretz Moncharsh

Shmitta Mishametes B'Tchilaso means that last year Rosh HaShana cancelled all outstanding debts and not this Rosh HaShana. However, we pasken that tit is this Rosh HaShana following Shmitta that cancels debts. He should know that if he already wrote his pruzbol now, a week before Rosh HaShana, that it does not cover any loans given between the writing of the pruzbol and the end of the year. Therefore, it is preferable to wait until Erev Rosh HaShana to write the pruzbol.
