Managing network charge bad debt

In this letter we set out options to enable networks to recover any potential bad debts arising as a direct result of the Network Charge Deferral scheme in the year 2021-22. Our proposals within this letter will enable the effective recovery of bad debts arising as a result of this scheme, and would also allow for the recovery of other bad debts incurred due to non-payment of network charges, net of interest income accrued, on an enduring basis.
