Net contribution of very small businesses

Insolvencies are gradually increasing, month after month: in June the year-on-year increase was 15.9% compared to the same period in 2021, according to updated data from the Banque de France, and 10.0% in May.

The Covid-19 pandemic has greatly disrupted the insolvency figures, between the slowdown in the activity of the commercial courts and the cash support measures for companies which prevented them from insolvency.

The number of failures in France had dropped to around 27,000 in 2021, compared to more than 50,000 per year before the health crisis.

In July 2022, “

the number of defaults remains slightly above 3,000, as overall since the start of the year

”, indicates the monthly report of the Banque de France published on Wednesday.

Very small businesses made a significant contribution to business failures over twelve months compared to the previous twelve months (+44.4%) as well as small businesses (+36.4%).

Bankruptcies of medium-sized companies fell by 39.5%.
