The principle of so-called compensation has been introduced since January 2022 price list, recently issued by the Ministry of Finance. According to the authority, the measure should reduce the price of overpriced water.

“Thanks to the current acreage, completely new rules will be set for costs that can be included in the price of water so that the consumer pays only as much as necessary … The acreage better and more clearly defines the eligible costs and This should again increase the legal certainty of regulated entities, but also the ability of the state administration to control and enforce the rules, “said the Ministry of Finance. Checks on compliance with the rules of price regulation are carried out by the Specialized Tax Office.

The Ministry of Finance also adjusted the profit calculation. The maximum amount of profit remains the same. Newly, however, the office introduced, among other things, a clear distribution of profits of the owner and operator. The applied profit will continue to be limited by the maximum year-on-year increase, which is now seven percent. The Office also modified and unified, together with other regulators, the form of statements.
