What's New

The OEB has published the 2019 Quarter 3 prescribed accounting interest rates applicable to the carrying charges of deferral, variance and construction work in progress (CWIP) accounts of natural gas utilities, electricity distributors and other rate-regulated entities.

The OEB has accepted an Assurance of Voluntary Compliance from Essar Steel Algoma Inc. The Assurance responds to non-compliance related to operation in the wholesale market without a licence.

The OEB has issued an accounting guidance on the IESO invoice charge type 2148, Class B Global Adjustment Prior Period Correction Settlement Amount.

Here’s how we can help
