Convenient and easy payment with the QR bill

QR billing will be implemented throughout Switzerland on 30 June 2020. After a transitional period, it will gradually replace the red and orange payment slips. The QR bill makes it even easier to pay: all payment information is included in the code. Simply scan the QR code, authorise the payment, and you're done.

Advantages of the QR bill:

  • Simply scan the QR code to access all billing details.
  • No more typing in account and reference numbers. This saves time and avoids errors.
  • With a single click, the payment is authorised.

What changes for me?

Nothing changes for the bill recipient. In future, you will receive more and more QR bills, as they will gradually replace the red and orange payment slips over time.

Like the existing payment slip, the QR bill is divided into two parts: Receipt slip (1), payment section (2).

The "Swiss QR Code" (3) includes all information required for billing and payment.

The perforation (4) allows you to separate the payment section and receipt from the invoice and pay at the post office or send it to your bank with a payment order.
