Johannesburg - The total number of liquidations in December 2010 decreased by 14.9% year-on-year (y/y) to 325 from 382, after falling 29.4% y/y in November, Statistics South Africa data showed on Monday.

The total number of liquidations for 2010 went down by 3.4% to 3 992 from 4 133 in 2009.

The 3.4% drop in the total number of liquidations was due to decreases of 3.7% in compulsory liquidations and 3.4% in voluntary liquidations.

Close corporation liquidations slipped 8.5% while company liquidations went up by 2.6%.

The highest numbers of liquidations in 2010 were related to businesses in the financing, insurance, real estate, business services industry, wholesale and retail trade, catering and accommodation industry.
