Upcoming official and experimental statistics publications: October 2020

Scottish Statutory Debt Solutions (Experimental Statistics) – Monthly Editions

The following experimental statistics releases will be published on Accountant in Bankruptcy (AiB) website at 09:30 on the following dates:

  • October 2020 edition – publication date is 11 November 2020
  • November 2020 edition – publication date is 09 December 2020
  • December 2020 edition – publication date is 13 January 2021
  • January 2021 edition – publication date is 10 February 2021
  • February 2021 edition – publication date is 10 March 2021
  • March 2021 edition – publication date is 14 April 2021.

The reason for extending this monthly publication series from January 2021 to April 2021 is to ensure we continue to produce vital statistics on the impact of emergency measures brought in by both the Coronavirus (Scotland) Act 2020 and the Coronavirus (Scotland) (No.2) Act 2020. 

Note provisions in both Acts allow the Scottish Parliament to extend any of these emergency measures beyond the initial expiry date of 30 September 2020 to 31 March 2021 – subject to regular review.  However, one further, final extension until 30 September 2021 may be possible if deemed necessary.  In the case of such extension, we will consider the possibility of extending the monthly series publication for another six months.

Scottish Insolvency Statistics – Quarterly Editions

On Friday 20 March 2020, the production and publication of the main quarterly Scottish Insolvency Statistics were temporarily suspended until further notice.  This action is necessary due to an urgent shift of resource within Scottish Government to help manage immediate issues arising from the COVID-19 pandemic.

However, AiB ensured that we continued to produce vital data and statistics needed to response to the impact of this COVID-19 pandemic on our economy and society.  Therefore, the monthly publication series titled “Scottish Statutory Debt Solutions” was created for this purpose.

AiB is currently working to restart the quarterly publication series.  Please note this publication series will be renamed as “Scottish Statutory Debt Solutions Statistics”.  This publication series will include statutory moratoriums on diligence.

The following quarterly, official statistics releases will be published on Accountant in Bankruptcy (AiB) website at 09:30 on the following dates:
