More Scottish Firms Insolvent

The number of companies going into administration or liquidation in Scotland has reached a new record according to figures released by the Accountant in Bankruptcy, the insolvency service for Scotland. 1,098 companies were deemed insolvent which represents an increase of 45.8% on the previous 12 months and a rise of 21.2% on the previous highest figure of 906 from 2002.

Again, this may be due to the fact that there really is no rescue culture in Scotland. CVAs are not usually considered as there is a presumption against allowing the debtor a second chance and there is a mistaken belief that HMRC in Scotland will not support a CVA.
