One thing is certain during the uncertainty of this pandemic: Not many people or businesses in New Hampshire are going bankrupt.

Fifty-one individuals filed for bankruptcy protection in the state in November, just short of the modern record by three – and that was a record set in September. In October, there were 54, just as in January and July. So far this year, the monthly average of filings is little over 62, nearly 30 percent lower than last year.

It all means that it looks like there will be a record low number of bankruptcy filings when the books are closed on 2021.

As for business filings, two personal filings included business-related debt, compared to six in October. Two businesses filed directly, compared to three in October. They were:

  • NI Holdings Inc., fdba as Novus Imaging Inc., Moultonborough, filed Nov. 16, Chapter 7. Assets: $0. Liabilities: $215,953.
  • SmartFit 640 Holdings Inc., Portsmouth, filed Nov. 23, Chapter 7. Assets: $32,000. Liabilities: $175,001.
