The citizens are prompt payers of provided housing and communal services and gradually pay off debts of previous periods. According to data provided by the State Statistics Service of Ukraine, the amount of paid bills in March amounted to UAH 18 billion which is 100.9% of accrued fund during this period. A sum worth UAH 4 billion was paid for the electricity supply that is 143.9% of the accrued amounts.
At the same time, in March average charges together with payment for electricity per one personal account holder amounted to UAH 2296.5.
It should be noted that in March the process of monetization of subsidies was kicked off according to the Government’s decision. In March 3.4 million households received subsidies worth UAH 5.7 billion for payment of utilities. The payment for services provided that exceeded the accrued volumes confirms the fact that the process of monetization goes smoothly. It is also worth noting that of the recipients of subsidies have debts for payment of housing and communal services, a cashless settlement mechanism will be applied to them.
