Business Barometer

The latest figures for 2013 show that 902 Irish companies have held a meeting of creditors (MOC) with a view to entering in to liquidation - an average of three per day.

This represents a 20% drop on the same period in 2012 (1st January - 21st November) when 1,123 companies held an MOC.

According to their latest sets of filed accounts these 902 companies owe their short term creditors approximately E288.3m - while not all of these companies are insolvent, many creditors will struggle to reclaim debts owed in full.

The drop in MOCs this year has translated in to a drop in company insolvencies.

1,421 Irish companies have been declared insolvent this year - down 18% on the same period in 2012 (1,741 company insolvencies).
