Creditors’ voluntary liquidations down from last quarter – Q1 2019

The Insolvency Service has released its latest figures for Q1 2019 and reports that creditors’ voluntary liquidations are down 17.8% from Q4 2018. Other company insolvencies are up 25%, taking them to their highest level for five years.

Individual insolvencies have decreased overall this quarter driven largely by a 11.4% fall in individual voluntary arrangemens. However, individual insolvencies are still at their second highest level since Q3 2010.
