The major part of the receivables – RUB 6.1 billion – accounts for St. Petersburg with RUB 5.5 billion being owed by communal service providers. The sum of money amounting RUB 3.7 billion was formed by the managing companies more than a half of whose authorised capital belongs to the city administration.

The Republic of Karelia owes PJSC TGC-1 RUB 404.7 million, the Murmansk Region – RUB 884.6 million.

“According to the results of the analysis, both Petrozavodsk and Northern Subarctic regions where customers pay for heat supplied directly to TGC-1 witness a significant increase in payments collectability,” states Sergey Lapin, Head of Heat Sales Department, TGC-1. “The situation has also ameliorated in the houses of St. Petersburg that now use a system of direct payments. So far this system has been implemented in more than 200 houses of the Northern capital. Positive dynamics is also seen in houses under state housing agencies’ supervision. However, other customer groups of St. Petersburg show growing overdue receivables.”
