Credit union annual statistics - 2017

The credit union annual statistics are statistics aggregated from the annual (CY) returns submitted by authorised credit unions in the United Kingdom.
Published on 31 July 2018

The statistics provide a breakdown of the balance sheet, income statement, membership and loans. The figures are reported at a UK level and split to show aggregated values for England, Northern Ireland, Scotland and Wales.

Key points from the 2017 annual data include:

  • The number of firms has continued to decrease in 2017 due to a number of mergers and non-submitters. These non-submitters account for about one percent of total assets; 
  • The data shows a continuing trend of an increase in total assets, rising 5% in 2017 to £3.2bn for the UK; 
  • Loans to members increased 6% in 2017 to £1.4bn, which represents 44% of total assets for the UK; 
  • The total net liabilities of loans in arrears increased 16% to £64m, which represents 5% of total loans to members.
