Main messages

Insolvencies in Q2 2019

  • Total individual insolvencies decreased in Q2 2019 for the second consecutive quarter, following an 8 year high in Q4 2018.
  • This was driven by falls in individual voluntary arrangements and debt relief orders.
  • Despite this decrease, individual insolvencies remain high - the last 3 quarters have been the highest since Q4 2010.
  • This is the highest level of bankruptcies since Q4 2014 but they remain low in comparison to 2009 to 2014 levels.
