Deloitte predicts surge in company administrations

Increase due to high debt levels and rising interest rates

Deloitte has warned that more
companies are expected to file for administration in the coming months due to
high debt levels and rising interest rates.

The firm said that industries such as food processing were particularly
vulnerable as they have been squeezed by rising costs of raw materials and on
their profit margins.

Highly indebted businesses in the property and construction industries may
also suffer soon as
interest
rate rises
put a squeeze on growth in property values.

‘We will see an acceleration in the rate of companies going into
administration as more marginal investments begin to buckle,’ Deloitte said.
