In the 2nd quarter 2021

Balance between the number of company incorporations and dissolutions was positive (+159) 

According to the data provided to Statistics Portugal by the Directorate General of the Policy of Justice, in the 2nd quarter of 2021, the number of company incorporations with head offices in the Autonomous Region of Madeira was higher (294) than the number of dissolutions (135), which resulted in a positive balance of 159 companies. Compared to the year-ago quarter, there were 183 more incorporations and 51 more dissolutions. It should be noted that in this period, mainly in the month of April, due to the economic paralysis caused by the COVID-19 pandemic, was recorded the lowest number of company incorporations (18) and dissolutions (20) in the last 10 years.
