Pinner, London (PRWEB UK) 31 January 2013
There was a rise in company closures in Pinner during the third quarter of last year, according to figures published in the latest Duport Business Confidence Report.
Between July and September, there were 134 company closures. This figure represents a 13% rise on the same period in 2011.
Company formation also fell during Q3. There were 162 companies formed, compared to 169 during the third quarter of 2011. The combination of a rise in company closures and a fall in company formation led to an overall reduction in net company growth.
Managing Director of Duport.co.uk, Peter Valaitis commented:
“Pinner has long been thought of as one of the most affluent areas of London, but the rise in company closures shows that it is not immune to difficult economic conditions.”
“However, with a high-earning population and excellent transport links to the city, I suspect company formations will rise again in the coming year.”
