The figures for the number of corporate insolvencies in the third quarter of 2021 show a small decrease in business failing in that period. This is despite all the headlines in the news about supply chain issues and fuel cost rises. Whilst this is encouraging news, we believe that it is too early to say whether or not UK Plc is on a rocky road as we come out of the pandemic. We have certainly noticed an increase in the number of enquires from directors of distressed businesses in the last few weeks.
The announcement that there will be no immediate increase in interest rates this week was certainly good news for individuals with mortgages and also businesses in general. The comments from the BOfE that rates might have to rise if things change however shows that in their eyes, the recovery is by no means certain.
Here at Redman Nichols Butler we recognise that these are challenging times for business and we are always at hand to provide any input or assistance we can to businesses and their directors who are concerned about their future.
