The number of suspended activities is increasing
The number of suspended activities is systematically increasing.
In the first quarter of 2021, nearly 50,000 companies decided to suspend their activities. This is 1/3 of the total number of suspended operations of enterprises last year. According to forecasts, in 2021 as many as 250,000 business activities may be suspended.
The following factors induce the decision to suspend activities:
- fixed costs incurred,
- falling income,
- no prospects for improvement of the situation,
- restrictions introduced as a result of subsequent lockdowns.
Among the sectors in which decisions to suspend business activity were most often made, the following companies should be mentioned: construction, finishing, taxi, retail, road transport, and cosmetics.
