Business insolvencies jump 30% in three months

Analysis by Mazars shows a surge in corporate insolvencies, with a 30% increase in the last three months. Close to 6,000 firms have gone down in the period, up from 4,578 in the previous three months. There were 1,817 insolvencies last month, with this a 79% increase on the number recorded in May 2021.
