Media release

You can read our commentary for this quarter in our media release.


Note: We report the business and non-business personal insolvency statistics based on the number of debtors, not the number of administrations. We treat insolvency proceedings involving two or more partners as one administration. The business and non-business statistics will generally be higher than statistics based on administrations, the quarterly personal insolvency statistics.

Release schedule

We publish all statistics release dates in advance.
