In accordance with the Federal Law 307-ďă of November 03, 2015 overdue payment sanctions for the power transmission services are toughened. Consumers, paid untimely or incompletely for the power transmission services provided, are obliged to pay to their grid operator an interest at the rate of 1/130 of the refinancing rate of the Central Bank of the Russian Federation, acting on the date of actual payment, of the outstanding sum per each day of delay - starting from the next day after the onset deadline until the day of actual payment. Thus, a new normative document indicates the rate for violation of terms of payment by contractors at a rate of 23% per annum. Now, the amount of the penalty is comparable to bank interest rates on loans. Also, the above regulatory document toughens penalties on restricted power supply mode. Consumer's violation of restricted power supply mode, failure to comply with requirements for self-limiting power consumption mode, denial in access of the grid operator representatives or another person obliged to carry out actions to impose the power consumption restrictions - all these cause imposition of administrative fines on officials in the amount of ten to one hundred thousand rubles or disqualification for a period of two to three years; for legal entities - from one hundred thousand to two hundred thousand rubles.

This once again proves the fact that references to the economic difficulties of debtor companies are only an excuse for the violation of the payment discipline.
