NETTING of payments

Apart from the common way of the liabilities/receivables settlement (payment order and direct debiting) the netting is used in cases specified below.

The netting is defined as a set-off of liabilities and receivables made within particular evaluations and then a net balance of netting is settled.

  • Settlement of a daily evaluation - netting of daily payments for a particular commodity, day of delivery and currency
  • Monthly settlement of differences between meter readings and consumption values based on load profiles - netting of liabilities and receivables (trade code TDD)
  • Final monthly settlement of differences between meter readings and consumption values based on load profiles - netting of liabilities and receivables (trade code TDD)

Identification of netted items in financial settlement (trade code used in the payment order and reference number)

Trade code Commodity Currency Reference number
credit of participant
Reference number
debet of participant
 EE0  power  EUR  877*******  977*******
 EC0  power  CZK  877*******  977*******
 TD0  power - load profiles  CZK  7779******  7779******

These identifications and reference numbers will be used even if there is only one trade/payment (credit or debit) per a day of delivery and currency.

More payments with the same impact on a credit/debit balance (for example only purchases = debits), for the same day of delivery and the same currency will be summed up and the total amount will be cleared using the above identifications.

A reference number of an invoice/correction tax document is used as a reference of payment if the result of TDD type of trade is only one liability or only one receivable. In that case, the new reference is not used.

There are the special reports in CS OTE (section Risk Manag./ Financial reports) that show the netted items, the final amount to be settled and reference number:
