Slightly more bankruptcies in September

27/10/2011 09:30

In September 2011, 529 businesses and institutions (excluding one-man businesses) in the Netherlands were declared bankrupt, approximately 30 more than in August.

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-month moving average is a more reliable indicator.

The three-month moving average was 498 in September versus 467 in August. The number of bankruptcies has fluctuated around the 500 mark for almost a year now.

The figures published in this update have been adjusted from those published on 10 October 2011. The revision is based on new and more detailed information.
