Business Insolvencies hit five year peak

As per the Government’s Insolvency Service,the business insolvency total reached more than 4,000 in the first quarter as Brexit issues and the issues with the high street hit. The areas hit the worst were in the retail trade and the vehicle repair industry.

Insolvency experts have said uncertainty over Brexit had placed firms under high pressure as they had to build up stocks of parts and goods. One expert,Stuart Frith,the president of the insolvency and restructuring trade body R3,said firms had “exhausted their standard toolkit for coping with reduced demand”. He added: “Further discounting won’t cut it,or is impossible,and a restructuring is the only option”

Increasing employment costs,business rates and Brexit had taken their toll on smaller firms as uncertainty is a critical negative issue for small firms and the self-employed.

The level of administrations in the first quarter of the year also increased to 451,up 218% from the final quarter of 2018 – this being the most recorded since the first quarter of 2014

Low trading figures over the crucial Christmas shopping period did not help,subdued levels of consumer confidence being blamed here. There are around 481,000 British businesses in significant distress and are exposed to a real risk of becoming insolvent.

One of the best ways that companies can guard against insolvency is to make sure that their credit management and accounting systems are strong enough to retain the required level of cash required.
