consumers in ten autonomous communities, shall pay a surcharge on the receipts of the light from September of the current year on a one-time or pro-rated in 12 payments monthly after the inclusion of an additional territorial not applied in the past and related to the tolls of access of electrical energy. This new concept is due to a rebilling by consumption six years ago in the regions that is not had an impact on the users the required taxes in 2013, which, in turn, were assumed by the marketers of electricity . The additional amount ranges from less than a euro in some communities, up to almost 20 euros more that will be implemented in Galicia, as it reminds the Consumer Organization OCU. So, this rebilling is desgranará on the receipt under the concept of "supplement territorial" and s e charged to households with contract during 2013, although they have changed marketing company and whether or not they are in the regulated market.

The delay in billing is because in 2012, it legislated that it was a prescriptive charge to the citizen, these taxes autonomous electrical activity, but the access fees did not reflect this difference. In this way, this supplement was not referred to in the practice by the Government and had to be absorbed by the own trading companies , which appealed the matter. The debate was settled ruling of the Supreme Court the obligation to pay the surcharge to cover the fee that should be added to the toll access an extra with regional origin and that would be paid by the users
A year later, in 2014, revised again by the law and eliminated the obligation to pass on the land tax to consumers , however, the companies decided to claim the amounts not charged retroactively.Example invoice with the supplement territorial - SOURCE:LUCERA
In 2017 has already been applied a first rebilling to customers from La Rioja, Castilla La Mancha and Valencia , and now it is your turn to apply it to Andalusia, Aragon, Asturias, Cantabria, Castile and León, Extremadura, Galicia, Madrid, Murcia, Navarra, spain . To them also adds Catalonia , whose rebilling interim -approved in 2017 - was insufficient to raise the entire amount and now it corresponds to him to pay the difference. In conclusion, all of the Autonomous Communities that did not apply the tax regional mandatory on those dates - except Balearic islands, Canary islands and Basque Country you do not have in the fiscal year 2013 taxes related supplements - apply surcharges on the receipt of the light.
But how much will be charged in each region? In function of the amount will be billed a one-time or 12 months, as indicated from Lucera. If the rebill is less than two euros (without VAT) will be charged in a single receipt . If the amount is more than 2 euros (without VAT) will be pro-rated the amount to pay in the receipts of the whole year.
Before you apply the surcharge on the receipt , the distribution companies or marketers should send their customers a letter or briefing note in the alert of this regularization in the collection which will identified by the concept "Supplement territorial tax autonomy of the Autonomous Community [X] of the year 2013".
In the blog of the company Gesternova Energy advance that the collection will start to apply from September this year and remember that the traders only make up of intermediaries in the collection as it "should give all of the funds raised by this concept or the distributors, which, in turn, will be the responsible for liquidating the supplement with each autonomous community".
