In June this year, 437 businesses and institutions (excluding one-man businesses) in the Netherlands were declared bankrupt, 121 fewer than in May.
As the number of businesses declared bankrupt in a particular month is closely related to the number of days the courts are in session, it may vary considerably from month to month. Therefore, the three-monthly moving average is a more reliable indicator.
The three-monthly moving average was 479 in June versus 514 in May. The number of bankruptcies has varied around 500 for almost a year now.
