Data from the UK's Insolvency Service has shown that insolvencies in England and Wales fell by 15% YoY but remain higher than pre-pandemic levels, with 1,685 companies registered insolvent in April.

While the business climate remains tough, trade body R3 said the impact of the Bank of England's interest rate rises had yet to be felt by firms as many had short-term fixed-rate borrowing costs. The BoE said it estimated that only part of its past interest rate rises had been felt by the economy.
