No more red and orange payment slips as of 30 September 2022?

QR code is now used for payments. The QR-bill was introduced on 30 June 2020 to harmonise and digitise payment traffic. It follows the implementation of the ISO 20022 standard in 2018 and replaces the current red (BV) and orange (BVR) payment slips. QR-invoice is equipped with a Swiss QR Code which contains all the necessary payment information. Important data are also included in written form.
To trigger a payment, you simply need to scan the QR code, a sort of two-dimensional barcode, present on the invoice. There is no longer need to enter information and references, making payment faster and error-free. The QR-invoice thus facilitates the management of invoices and transfers.
While it was still possible to use the red and orange payment slips in conjunction with the QR-bill during the transitional period, these disappeared permanently on 30 September 2022. This makes QR-invoicing a federal requirement for all business relationships.
Migrating to QR-invoicing now ensures that companies are in tune with economic changes.
