PJSC “Quadra – Power Generation” has joined in the system for sharing data on consumers’ payment discipline “SPARK Payments Monitoring” which is implemented based on the system “Spark-Interfax.” The company will publish information on the timely redemption of indebtedness for heat supply services by contractors in 11 regions of the Central Federal District.
“The problem of receivables affects the interests of not only the resource supplying entities, but also consumers. The indebtedness growth impedes the formation of the sources of financing the repairs programs, which can have a negative impact on the reliability and quality of heat supply. We believe that the publication of the data on unfair contractors will help improve the level of their payment discipline, understand our consumer better and build a functional and mutually profitable dialogue with it,” stressed Andrey Matytsin, acting director of the thermal energy sales department of PJSC “Quadra – Power Generation.”
Publication of the data in the system “SPARK Payments Monitoring” will also help the company identify the cases of “payments prioritization” – the practice of conducting business, when a client company considers it appropriate to make payments to some suppliers in time, and to delay payments to other suppliers under various pretexts which are often vain.
Following the year 2018, the legal entities’ debt to PJSC “Quadra – Power Generation” has equaled RUB 5.5 bn. The debt in the amount of RUB 5.1 bn is overdue for more than 90 days. Following the past year, the debt of budget-financed entities and the category of “other consumers” has grown.
