2nd Quarter
86 new companies

During the second quarter of 2019, 86 new companies were entered in the commercial register. This figure is lower than the first quarter’s and than the second quarter of 2018 (Q2 2018: 121). As was the case for the first quarter, one can note that a larger amount of new companies are choosing the form of societies (LLCs, SARL or SA in French) rather than individual companies.

Even though the entrepreneurial dynamics is timid when compared with the previous years, it is important to note the positive evolution, this quarter, of the balance between new registrations/arrivals vs departures/bankruptcies/companies that cease trading: it has gone from 1 company in Q1 to 30 companies in Q2.

The slowing trend noted at the end of 2018 seems confirmed, but it has to be considered in the positive light of the balance for business creation. We will avoid drawing a general conclusion at this stage.

Promove looks forward to sharing a new situation review in early October.
