Insolvencies in Q1 2019

  • Total individual insolvencies fell in Q1 2019 from an 8 year high in Q4 2018
  • This fall was largely driven by a decrease in the number of individual voluntary arrangements, though both debt relief orders and bankruptcies fell slightly from Q4 2018
  • Total individual insolvencies in Q1 2019 were the second-highest since Q3 2010
