The number of debtors has also fallen, from 284.6 thousand, to 274.2 thousand. In addition, the average value of debt is lower, at 33.5 thousand zlotys.
At the same time, companies that have been in business for the tenth year are struggling with the most debt. Among them, the largest number are construction and trading companies. A total of 16 thousand companies have debts. They amount to 507 million zlotys. The largest has a construction company from the Subcarpathian region, which owes contractors as much as PLN 8.7 million.

Companies operating in the market for less than a year and those that have been in operation for one to three years are doing well with repayment of liabilities.
