Pronounced debt restructuring plans; way of ending, type of debtor, region


This table gives information on debt restructuring plans pronounced by Dutch courts. The sentences are divided by type of verdict, by type of debtor, by age of the debtor, by way of ending and by region.

Data available from: 1999.

Status of the figures:
The data on the number of pronounced debt restructuring plans can be adjusted retrospectively until the year preceding the last reported year. The same applies for the data by age.

Data on debtors with business can be adjusted constantly. The reason for this is that in many cases, it doesn't become clear until the final stages of the debt repayment whether or not it concerns a debtor with a business.
The data on the way of ending can also be adjusted at any moment.

From January 1st 2008, all debt restructuring plans are pronounced finally instead of preliminarily.

Changes as of 30 March 2018:
Figures all quarters of 2017 and the annual figures of 2017 are available.

When will new figures be published?
Due to partial loss of funding, this table will not be updated every quarter. More information can be found in paragraph 3. This table will stop in 2019 en replaced by a new table with only annual figures. This will appear annually at the beginning of the second quarter.
