1 Service Level Accounting Separation We make ICT strategies work

2 Regulating anti-competitive pricing behaviors How? Accounting Separation is a regulatory instrument that helps the NRA to regulate anticompetitive pricing behaviors. Anti-competitive Pricing Behaviors Regulatory Control Example 1: Cross subsidy A vertically integrated operator subsidizes its fixed broad services with the mobile services in a bundled packaged offer. With this, a sole broadband provider can hardly compete with Profit and Loss Statement of Mobile Termination Service Retail Revenues - From initial connection services - From line maintenance services - From leased line services - From voice services - Local - National - Fixed to mobile - Others - From data services - Other revenues Total Retail Revenues External Wholesale Revenues - From fixed operators 1,000,000,00 - From mobile operators 1,000,000,00 - From international operators 1,000,000,00 - From others Total External Wholesale Revenues 3,000,000,00 Example 2: Predatory / margin squeeze pricing A vertically integrated operator decreases the retail prices and on the other hand increases the prices of wholesale inputs. It s doubtful that a small operator will have sufficient margin to survive its business Internal Wholesale Revenues From internal retail: Domestic Fixed Line Service From internal retail: Domestic Mobile Service From internal retail: International Telephone Service 0 From internal retail: Narrowband Internet Access Servic From internal retail: Broadband Internet Access Service Total Internal Wholesale Revenues Separate the Financial Statements Total Revenues 3,000,000,00 Direct Costs - External direct cost 30,000,00 - Internal transfer charge from service 1 transfer charge from service transfer of charge the from service XOperator 0 - Internal N/A N/A - Internal N/A Total Direct Costs 30,000,00 Operating Costs - Staff cost 57,206,101 N/A - Other operating cost 106,669,653 N/A Total Operating Costs 163,875,755 N/A - Depreciation & Amortization 157,248,615 N/A Total 157,248,615 N/A Total Costs 351,124,369 N/A Example 3: Discriminatory pricing The wholesale prices offered to external parties are different from the prices offered to internal ones / subsidiaries. 2 Total Profit (EBIT) 2,648,875,631 N/A Key Benefits Proof based on trustful costing and pricing information.

3 Accounting Separation implementation Many NRAs worldwide have adopted Accounting Separation (AS). The NRAs such as in New Zealand, Ireland, Saudi & Thailand have recently introduced a modern AS system. Implementation of Accounting Separation Worldwide (Examples) Detailed AS obligation (service level) established for over a decade AS for specific purpose i.e. assisting the calculation of spectrum utilization fees New AS framework in 2010 replacing the old one in operation for 10 years Recently implemented service based AS in 2012 Entered into force in the beginning of 2006 based on traditional AS Comprehensive AS (service level) introduced since 2001 AS framework introduced in 2010 taking into account modern telecoms world Detailed and simplified AS applied to different licensees 3 AS firstly introduced in 2009

4 Modern Accounting Separation will be based on Service / Market The modern AS distinguishes an incumbent's financial statement by market or service. This help the NRA address the pricing problem directly at the service in concern.

This help the NRA to address the pricing problem at the specific services which are subject to regulation or in a particular concern.

5 To implement Accounting Separation, what are the challenges for NRAs and Operators? Several challenges are foreseen when implementing service level Accounting Separation; starting from strategic directions to detailed implementation issues. Challenge Key Questions Why it is important Define Regulatory Strategy Why AS is needed? What regulatory objectives will be met by imposing AS? Accounting Separation gives additional burden to the operators therefore solid argumentations and justifications from the NRA are utmost important. Design Accounting Separation Framework Who should be obliged to AS? What services should be separated? How the AS report should look like? The proportional obligation makes Accounting Separation more effective while achieving regulatory goals. Detail Accounting Separation Methodology What cost basis should be applied? HCA or CCA? What costing principle should be used? FDC or LRIC? The Accounting Separation reports provide basis for the NRA to analyze detailed costing data and its implications. Implement Accounting Separation How the cost data of an operator will be allocated to different services? What are the results or AS statements and their implications? 5 Implementation could become a very complicated task taking a lot of resources. The results shown in AS reports could jeopardize the company s businesses.

6 Accounting Separation framework design In the framework design, NRAs have to consider several strategic options when determining designated operators, AS services, reporting formats & audit requirements. Key Considerations of Accounting Separation Framework Design Possible options: SMP only Facility-based license only Vertically integrated operator only Arbitrary designation Main points: Regulated vs. nonregulated services Retail vs. wholesale Level of disaggregation: market / service / product level Accounting Separation Services Designated Operator Accounting Separation Framework Audit Requirements 6 Reporting Format Reporting scope: Single or multiple level of report Only P&L and Capital Employed With additional costing data Key consideration: Auditor proposed by itself or by the regulator Detailed audit or high level review Auditing timeframe

7 Determining services subject to Accounting Separation (AS Services) The imposed AS Services need to be justified. Service definitions are very crucial since they usually become controversial issues and delay the whole process.

8 Service Costing Model as a cost allocation tool Cost allocation is the most complicated task in AS. Service Costing Model has to be developed and used as a tool to help distribute different cost types to AS Services.

The Routing Table shows how different services are consuming the existing infrastructure. The calculation bases on call scenarios and weighted minutes. 8 Cost are allocated to services All cost originators can be traced back Cost are aggregated on market level
