10/04/2012 09:30

In March, 615 businesses and institutions (excluding one-man businesses) in the Netherlands were declared bankrupt versus 622 in February.

As the number of businesses declared bankrupt in a particular month is closely related to the number of days courts are in session, it may vary considerably from month to month. Therefore, the three-month moving average is a more reliable indicator.

With 639, the three-month moving average increased by more than 30 compared to February. The number of bankruptcies has risen considerably since the summer of 2011.
