At the present stage, it becomes relevant to search for a new model of tariff formation in the housing and communal services (HCS) in accordance with the scale and significance of restructuring the economy and the conditions of functioning during a pandemic, as well as effective mechanisms for regulating tariffs and reducing the cost of production and provision of services. Despite the progress in improving the tariff policy, determined by the long-term period of the formation of parameters for changing the regulated tariffs and the use of the existing multi-level system of social protection of the population when paying for housing and communal services in the regulation of prices for the organizations of the communal complex, the expansion of methodological approaches to the regulation of tariff policy, the existing system of social protection of the population when paying for housing and communal services, the availability of information on the activities of regulated organizations, the task of accelerating the growth of the Russian economy and the sustainable functioning of housing and communal services dictate the need to consider tariff policy as one of the tools of resource efficiency and find additional sources of funding. The problems systematized in the article require decision-making to eliminate them at the state, regional and municipal levels. The necessity of combining a significant number of separate sectoral documents on the communal sector into a single federal law has been proved, which will regulate and establish unified regulatory and methodological principles for the formation of tariffs and will make this process more transparent. The paper discusses the problems of increasing the importance of the share of the investment component in the tariffs for utilities, as well as factors such as deductions from profits (with their financial stability), raising borrowed funds, selling bonds and systematic audit of their production and economic activities, increasing the transparency of costs.
