Corporate insolvencies in Ireland are continuing to rise, despite the relative health of the Irish economy. In fact, according to our most recent research, the first six months of 2023 saw a 48% year-on-year increase in insolvencies, with 410 insolvencies recorded in H1.

Unfortunately many of the above 410 companies may leave creditors behind with thousands of euros of bad debts and unpaid invoices.

Knowing in advance that a key customer or supplier is showing signs of potential failure, can be a life saver for any business. It allows for corrective positive proactive action to be taken. To minimise exposure. This can be to reduce the number of days of credit or a stronger focus on credit control for higher risk customers.

On average Vision-net is predicting up to 80% of business failures before they happen. Often up to six months before an insolvency occurs. This allows for a business to create contingency plans in advance of a high risk red flag, especially if there is a reliance on a key customer or supplier.

To give you an example of how powerful our systems are at predicting business failures, here is a small snapshot of companies who recently scheduled a meeting of creditors to appoint a liquidator click here. Each and every one of these Business failures were predicted by Vision-net.ie.
