Business Barometer

Over ?20m in bad debts recorded in January and February 2019.

Over €20m in bad debt judgments have been awarded against companies and consumers in the first two months of 2019. Although this figure is down on the same period in 2018 (€70m) it's still a sizeable sum and a reminder not to lose sight of the importance of the credit control and cash collection functions in your business.

While the total value of judgments in the first two months of this year are down 71% on the same period in 2017, the overall number has increased by 5% (449 v 428).

387 judgments have been awarded against consumers (up 14% on 2018 - 339) in January and February this year and these have a value of €19.6m - an average of €50,697 per judgment.

A further €832,171 in bad debts were registered against companies in 62 separate judgments (€13,422 per judgment).

While these figures reflect a drop in the value of bad debt judgments, €20m is still a substantial figure, and the increase in overall numbers of judgments helps illustrate that there is still an ongoing need for continued risk assessment and client monitoring.
