generallly the service charges are paid in advance, based on an estimation,calculated on the previous years costs, regularised at the end of the year (fiscal.)
So if they've gone up, or you have been asked for an extra /increased payment it should be because the charges for the past year were higher than the estimation.
You can insist o a copy of the breakdown of charges to see where the money went but I dont think there is an official index for charges as there is for the rent
