Times continue to be tough for businesses and last quarters’ insolvency figures clearly demonstrate just how difficult it still is for business owners to avoid unmanageable debt in a challenging operating environment.
Insolvencies are on the increase
The most recent government figures revealed that between 1 July and 30 September 2023, there were 6,208 registered company insolvencies, of which 4,965 were creditors’ voluntary liquidations, 735 compulsory liquidations, 466 administrations, 41 company voluntary arrangements and one receivership appointment.
The number of insolvencies for the last two quarters of 2023 makes this year is look as though it will see the highest number of insolvencies since the 2009 financial crisis and the highest numbers of CVLs since 1960, with insolvencies in England and Wales rising 10% from a year ago in the three months to the end of September.
With the number of businesses, with county court judgments against them that exceed £5,000, rising by 25% over the same three-month period it doesn’t seem as if the situation will improve any time soon.
The challenges facing businesses continue to grow
Many business owners and managers thought that Covid would be their toughest challenge, but inflation and energy costs are still high, while the cost of borrowing has increased but government support has been withdrawn.
All of these factors, together with reduced consumer confidence and spending, have made it a very difficult environment in which to start, grow or sustain a going concern.
