The Insolvency Service has committed to releasing monthly company and individual insolvency statistics for England and Wales, and monthly company statistics for Scotland, throughout the remainder of the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic, and for a period thereafter. These new Monthly Insolvency Statistics are released as provisional experimental statistics, published two weeks in arrears of month end, to provide faster indicators of the impact of the pandemic on insolvency.
Our routine Official and National Statistics will continue to be released as usual, with the exception of the Individual Insolvencies by Location, Age and Gender, England and Wales 2019 statistics. This publication will be delayed from July 2020 to November 2020 and will be released alongside the Individual Insolvencies by Parliamentary Constituency, England and Wales, 2019 statistics.
In response to the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic, the Accountant in Bankruptcy (AiB) separately publishes Monthly Personal Insolvency Statistics for Scotland, two weeks in arrears of month end.
