Foreign models for assessing the insolvency risk of enterprises are an effective way of forecasting a financial position, therefore, they should not be directly excluded from the analytical tools used in Bulgaria. At the same time, these models, developed in socio-economic conditions that differ from the Bulgarian ones, suggest that they should not be immediately applied without a thorough and targeted study. Such studies contribute to the application of foreign analytical models with relatively high predictive capabilities in their original form, as well as the adaptation of empirical equations with lower predictive capabilities to a specific business environment, and the construction of new models. In this way, the theory of financial analysis is enriched and favourable conditions for increasing the degree of certainty are created when assessing the insolvency risk of enterprises in practice.
