In March 2020, the total number of businesses withdrew from the market was 6,553, an increase of 55.5% compared to the same period in 2019.
For the whole first quarter, nearly 35,000 businesses withdrew from the market (up 2% compared to the same period in 2019). Inside:
+ 18,596 enterprises registered for temporary suspension of business (up 26.0%).

According to the Department of Business Registration Management, the situation of enterprises withdrawing from the market clearly shows the current trend of enterprises – psychology of waiting, waiting, “freezing” or putting enterprises in the state of “hibernation”. “to review the progress of the disease, then decide whether to continue the business or close the business, but not the entire business at this time.
This is reflected in the sharp increase in the number of enterprises temporarily suspending business in the short term and the decrease in the number of enterprises dissolved and waiting for dissolution.
Meanwhile, the number of newly established enterprises in Quarter I / 2020 tends to level off. The whole country had 29,711 newly established enterprises, an increase of 4.4% compared to the same period in 2019. This is one of the lowest increase in the number of newly established enterprises in the first quarter from 2015-2019 (compared to the average increase is 10.9%). This shows the increasing incidence of the Covid-19 pneumonia epidemic on the situation of domestic business registration.

” This is a concern because according to the annual record, the first quarter is usually the time when businesses plan their business for a new financial year, so the percentage of enterprises returning to operate in the same period of time. This time, the most will be. However, because the disease has not been controlled, businesses are still hesitant to listen to information to have the best plan, “the Department of Business Registration Management said.
