The ABI has published trade credit claims statistics for quarter 2, 2015.
Gross paid claims were £34.7M, a 47% increase on quarter 1 and a 61% increase on the same period last year.
Domestic claims represented 87% of the total.
The total number of claims was 2,686 which is an increase of some 26% compared to the same quarter last year.
Statistically we have always seen increased claims as the economy recovers from a period of recession, as some companies find difficulty in coping with increased demand and costs.
