A total of 7,100 companies and private individuals went bankrupt in the Netherlands in the first nine months of this year, a 7% fall on 2005, the national statistics office CBS says. The decline in corporate bankruptcies was 15% but the construction and catering sector both saw a rise in companies going bust.
