Sixteen New Hampshire businesses went under in July, which was – at least in relative terms – good news.

That’s the fewest number of business-related bankruptcies that have been filed in a single month so far in 2013, according to the federal bankruptcy court database. The previous month, June, saw the most bankruptcies in a single month so far this year, when there were 25 declared. March had previously had the fewest number of bankruptcies in 2013, when there were 19.

Only six of these filings were businesses themselves. The rest filed as individuals, but the filings revealed they represent a business that couldn’t pay its bills. 

This brings the number of business failures this year to 148.

Generally, the number of total bankruptcies (which include non-business-related filings) continues to fall. There were a total of 260 bankruptcies in July, six more than in June, but 75 fewer than the previous July, a 22 percent decline. It was the lowest number of filings in that month since July of 2007, when there were 223 total filings.
