Insolvency statistics - Series 1A Companies entering external administration and controller appointments by industry
These statistics record the number of companies entering into a form of external administration for the first time each month by industry – from July 2013 to July 2022. The data is broken down according to industry. A company will be included only once in these statistics, regardless of whether it subsequently enters into another form of external administration. The only exception occurs where a company is taken out of external administration (e.g. as the result of a court order) and at a later date re-enters external administration.
