Our latest figures for 2013 show a sizeable drop in the number of petitions being heard by the Irish High Court to have companies declared insolvent and wound-up.
To date the courts have been presented with petitions to have 66 Irish companies liquidated - an average of just over 9 per month.
This figure is down 38% from the same period in 2012 when petitions to have 106 Irish companies were presented to the courts.
In order to present a petition to have a company wound up, an individual or a company (most likely a creditor) must be able to show that they are owed a minimum of €1,269.74 (1,000 in old Irish punts).
Of the 66 companies that have had a winding-up petition presented against them this year, 35 (53%) have been liquidated and a further four have yet to have their cases heard by the courts.
