Methodological note

Definition of concepts

Bankruptcy proceedings
When entities or companies in a situation of insolvency present their assets to a meeting of creditors. It is judicial bodies with responsibilities for mercantile affairs that receive and manage the files presented.

Methodological aspects

The statistics for insolvency proceedings drawn up by the INE replace the suspension of payments and bankruptcy declaration statistics, as the Insolvency (Reform) Organic Act 8/2003 and the Insolvency Act 22/2003 came into force on 1 September 2004, and la Llei 22/2003 concursal.

The data on bankruptcy proceedings is obtained from courts with competences regarding commercial issues: the geographical attribution is made on the basis of the place where these proceedings were initiated.These statistics are drawn up based on the information provided by a sample of courts across Spain in questionnaires in which they are asked about the characteristics of declared insolvencies.

Insolvency proceedings admitted/filed: proceedings filed by the debtor or the creditor of this debtor in the event of the insolvency of the company or a financial position in which the debtor's obligations cannot be regularly met.
