Corporate Insolvencies hit five year peak

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

Insolvency experts have reported that uncertainty over Brexit had placed firms under intense 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”

Rising staffing 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 highest recorded since the first quarter of 2014

Poor 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 great 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.
