The May 2023 company insolvency statistics have today been published by the Office for National Statistics.
The number of registered company insolvencies for May 2023 was 2,552, 40% higher than recorded in May 2022 (1,825) and up from 1,685 in April 2023.
The 2,552 total insolvencies were comprised of:
151 administrations, up 80% over May 2022
2.181 creditors’ voluntary liquidations (CVLs), 38% higher than in May 2022

31 compulsory voluntary arrangements (CVAs), 121% higher than May 2022
