Table description


This publication gives an overview of petitioned, pronounced, annulled
and terminated bankruptcies.
Usually, a bankruptcy starts with a petition submitted by one or more
creditors or voluntarily. Bankruptcies can also be decreed by the
Public Prosecutor (in the public interest). A bankruptcy can also be
decreed by the court, if the debtor is denied suspension of payment or
sanction of the agreement.
Bankruptcy petitions are also used to collect payment from unwilling
debtors.

Data available from 1981 to 2011.

Status of the figures:

Reason for stopping:
