Why utility tariffs have decided to raise twice?


The first increase will take place in January of the next year — for 1,7%, the second — in July, for 4%. How do housing and communal services explain need of such growth? Photo: Igor Ivanko/AGN Moscow Tariffs for the communal flat next year will raise twice. The Ministry of Energy suggests to index tariffs since January for 1,7%, and since July — for 4%. The deputy head of the ministry Vyacheslav Kravchenko has reported about it to RIA Novosti. Earlier the Ministry of Economic Development suggested the 2019th to raise tariffs for 2,4% in July, that is it is lower than the level of official inflation. But in the Ministry of Energy consider that it is necessary to make indexation on inflation, that is for 4%. As for increase in utility tariffs by 1,7% in January, need of it for the government was explained with increase in a rate of a value added tax from 18% to 20%. It is still difficult to tell how increase in the VAT will affect housing and communal services, and it is unclear from where this figure in 1,7% has undertaken, the executive director of Housing and Public Utilities Control non-profit partnership Svetlana Razvorotneva says: Svetlana Razvorotneva the executive director of Housing and Public Utilities Control non-profit partnership "Nobody can tell now as far as in scales of the whole country expenses of the resource supplying organizations in connection with change of the VAT because at least not all enterprises in this sphere pay the VAT will raise. Taxable base at each enterprise different. For some reason then about the rate of inflation nobody spoke. Generally, all this occasions to meet requirements of lobbyists, resursnik. People with low income if the share of their expenses on housing and public utilities exceeds a certain threshold, have the right for a housing subsidy. In the majority of regions of the country this threshold — 22% of the total revenues of family, and in Moscow, for example, this threshold makes 10% therefore for the poorest there is a protection. But for the middle class some increase will be all the same noticeable". Housing and communal services have arguments in favor of increase in tariffs, the CEO of "Housing and Public Utilities and Urban Environment" association Alexey Makrushin:aleksey Makrushin the CEO of "Housing and Public Utilities and Urban Environment" association "The main problem connected with increase of utility tariffs at the moment that these tariffs, in fact, cover only inflation explains. And the main problem is that in these tariffs very small investment component. If we want to invest really in infrastructure so that networks were qualitative, there were low losses that production of thermal energy was effective, water utilities well worked, it is necessary to make or budgetary funds, or to increase tariffs higher rates. It seems to me, it is the main problem because we, in fact, have frozen at the moment growth of tariffs in the comparable prices, it even decreases in comparison with previous years because the last years the growth rate of tariffs was below the rate of inflation. But it simply leads to the fact that infrastructure continues to grow old". Earlier it was reported that the average bill for the communal flat in the first half of this year has overtaken inflation five times: he has grown by 10,6% in comparison with the same period of the 2017th.
