National coverage

Dit is een dataset die landelijk dekkend is. De data heeft betrekking op heel Nederland.


This table contains the number of bankruptcy orders issued by Dutch courts. Numbers are broken down by type of bankruptcy (natural persons with or without sole proprietorship, enterprises and institutions). The outcomes have been corrected for the effects of session days of the courts. Usually, bankruptcies are pronounced on a fixed day in the week, mostly Tuesday. As a result, a calendar month may contain four or five so-called session days. As a result, the number of pronounced bankruptcies can fluctuate from month to month. The series of outcomes in this publication have been cleaned for the effect of session days.

Data available from: January 1981

Status of the figures: The results are provisional during the year under review. The results will be declared definite in the first quarter following the year under review.

Changes as of July 12, 2024: The June 2024 figures have been added.
