According to a European Banking Authority (EBA) study published in 2020, the recovery time during insolvency proceedings ranges from 0.6 to 7 years on average across Member States. The (simple) average recovery rate of corporate loans in the EU was 40 % of the amount outstanding at the time of the default, but it varied between 6.9 % (Poland) and 95.2 % (Denmark). The average rate for small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) was 34 % as of 2018 (Figure 1).
