Scottish Bankruptcy at Pre-Recession Levels, Trust Deed Scotland Responds Thursday 5 February 2015 PDF Print there are still a lot of people suffering Positive news has been announced in Scotland, as the number of personal bankruptcies is at its lowest level for nearly a decade. A spokesperson from Trust Deed Scotland responds to the report. Scottish bankruptcy figures have fallen to their lowest point since before the recession, with a total of 2,633 personal insolvencies for the three months to the end of December. The figures include bankruptcies and protected trust deeds, which are 12 per cent down on the previous quarter and 21.3 per cent lower compared to the year before. The figures haven’t been this low since before the global economic downturn in 2007-08. There was also good news for Scottish businesses, who suffered fewer liquidations and receiverships. “It is extremely encouraging to see personal insolvencies continue to fall year-on-year,” claimed business minister Fergus Ewing. “Fewer companies going to the wall is also welcome news, as this means more businesses are contributing to the Scottish economy and more jobs are being retained. There can be no doubt insolvencies falling back to pre-recession levels reflects the improving economic picture in Scotland – but there is no room for complacency.” Trust Deed Scotland, a leading provider of debt advice in Scotland, takes a keen interest in reports such as this.
