The problem of debt accumulation for management companies – reasons and solutions

With the intensification of crisis-related manifestations in the economy, the problem of debts in the electricity market has been exacerbated.For example, according to the Russian Energy Ministry, arrears for electricity consumers on the retail market increased by 21% in 2016 (up to 143.8 billion rubles), for heat supply by about 15% (up to 138 billion rubles), and for gas by 23% (up to 161 billion rubles). According to the current data from the NP Market Council Association, debts for all categories of consumers (including the general public) are growing compared to 2016. The reasons for this growth in debt for many groups of consumers are trivial, and represent the results of crisis-related occurrences. However, reasons exist for the accumulation of debts that are caused by imperfect regulatory controls. In particular, the issue will be about the legal regulation of how the cost for utility services that have been delivered to management companies is calculated, as well as for services delivered by management companies to the general public.
