For residents of Moscow, payment should not be less than 1/200 of the refinancing rate, according to para. 3.9 Moscow Tripartite Agreement in 2011 between the Government of Moscow, the Moscow trade unions and the Moscow associations of employers.


Added option to capitalize the interest in the case of delay of payments for over a year. The change was made in response to a comment of user:
``The refinancing rate of the Central Bank - the interest rate on an annualized basis, payable to the central bank of the country for loans granted to credit institutions. Thus, interest rates on bank loans are capitalized once a year (usually). The legislator in st.236 LC did not specify this subtlety. At the same time, once the basis for calculating compensation set the refinancing rate of the Central Bank, you should care for specifics, ie in case of violation of terms of payment more than one year you should perform the corresponding capitalization of compensation sums.
