Harmonising payment transactions

The way payments are transacted in Switzerland was harmonised, bringing them into line with the new international standard ISO 20022.

This marked the first step towards standardising and simplifying payments and moving into the digital future.


In the next step, from 30 September 2022 red (ES) and orange (ESR) payment slips will be replaced by the new QR-bill. Digital eBills are already available as a potential replacement for payment slips.


Please find below all the key information on the harmonisation of payment transactions in Switzerland.
