The Economic Pulse: Insolvency Statistics for 2024

Published on 19/02/2024

According to the latest Company Insolvency statistics published by the UK Government National Statistics, the business landscape has been marked by a surge in company insolvencies, reaching an acceleration that has not been seen since 1993. A particularly startling trend is the unprecedented rise in Creditors' Voluntary Liquidations (CVLs), signalling a climate of heightened economic pressure and uncertainty. These statistics, while concerning, serve as a crucial reminder of the importance of risk management and business continuity planning. At SES Secure, we understand that behind every statistic is a story of a business facing challenges, and we're here to help achieve a more secure future.


The Economic Pulse: A Closer Look at Insolvency Statistics

With 25,158 company insolvencies recorded last year, there's an increased focus on the resilience of the technology-reliant sectors. The Information & Communication sector, alongside Professional, Scientific & Technical services, have seen substantial impacts, contributing significantly to the overall insolvency figures. For instance, the Information & Communication sector experienced an increase in insolvencies by nearly 20% compared to the previous year, reflecting the urgency for safeguarding digital assets.
