Key accounting policies of Kubanenergo PJSC

Accounting of fixed assets in the Company is carried out in accordance with the Regulation on Accounting "Accounting for Fixed Assets" PBU 6/01, approved by order of the Ministry of Finance of Russia dated 30.03.2001, No. 26n. Depreciation on fixed assets is calculated on a straight-line basis based on their useful life. For fully depreciated (worn) items of fixed assets, depreciation was not accrued.

Work in progress is estimated at actual cost.

Recognition of the expenses incurred as an expense of a future period and equating it to an asset with reflection in accounting and reporting is related to the principal approach established in the Company. This approach is based on an understanding of the temporary fact of the likelihood that an organization will receive economic benefits in the future from this asset and an assessment of its value with a sufficient degree of reliability.

Advances related to the acquisition of a non-current asset in the future, as well as raw materials and supplies intended for use in the creation of fixed assets, are recorded in line 1150 "Fixed Assets".

Real estate objects are actually exploited, for which capital investments are fully completed and primary documents are drawn up, are accepted for accounting as fixed assets with the release of a separate subaccount "Real estate objects for which no title is registered." For such objects, depreciation is calculated in a general manner from the first day of the month following the month in which the object was put into operation.

Accounting for revenue and other income is maintained by the Company in accordance with the Accounting Regulation "Income of the Organization" PBU 9/99, approved by order of the Ministry of Finance of Russia of 06.05.1999, No. 32n.

The Company has established estimated liabilities due to possible payments of compensation for unused vacations, unresolved requirements of electricity suppliers to compensate for losses and electricity transmission services, legal proceedings and other payments to employees in accordance with PBU 8/2010 "Estimated liabilities, contingent liabilities and contingent assets" approved by order of the Ministry of Finance of Russia dated December 13, 2010, No. 167n.
