Wrapping up 2023 – Credit Report Dec Month-End

February 15, 2024

Our monthly Market Insights Report based on 31 December data is out now.

The end of the calendar year and the Christmas / New Year’s break – time to wrap up at the end of an eventful 2023. It’s still too early to establish any trend patterns post-election but in Q1 we will have a better understanding of the credit environment.

While the 60 and 90 day arrears data shows an upward move in December this needs to be considered with previous years where payments are delayed or missed during the rush into the festive season. Comparing to previous Decembers the increase is arrears is line with previous years.

As we said in 2023 the industries to watch through the next three to four months is Retail and Hospitality, and the year has begun with Godfreys entering voluntary administration, Cotto’s restaurant closing and the list of insolvencies continues.
