The number of bankruptcies in the Netherlands fell in October from 118 to 109 compared to a month earlier. This was shown in figures published by Statistics Netherlands today. Partly due to the financial and fiscal support from the government, the number of bankruptcies has fallen almost consistently since April 2020. In the past four years, only in August 2021 the number of bankruptcies per month was lower than in October this year.
