(28.12.2021) The latest survey results from gfs.bern concerning the discontinuation of payment slips show: The switch of companies to the QR-bill picks up speed. Already today, around two thirds of all Swiss companies are planning to complete the switch on time.

 94% of the companies surveyed are aware of the switchover obligation and 81% know the exact end date of the payment slips, because from 30 September 2022, payments with the red and orange payment slips will no longer be possible in Switzerland. By this date at the latest, all companies must be able to issue QR-bills. The most recent survey also shows that the QR-bill has become part of everyday life and is winning people over: Those who have already made the switch have had good experiences with it and are satisfied with the use of QR-bill. 

Switch to the QR-bill or eBill Now

It is now high time for companies to switch over if they have not already done so. They also have to consider sending all payment documents at the beginning of the year, e.g. for instalments with due dates after the end date. The pressure to act here is even higher, since the companies actually need to switch to the QR-bill already at the beginning of 2022. Also to be considered is the timely conversion of standing orders.


Need for Action by Invoice Issuers with Hardware and Software Solutions

The payment transactions and particularly the accounts payable and accounts receivable accounting of invoice issuers with hardware and software solutions need to be switched over in time. Companies that have not yet dealt with the conversion so far are advised to contact their bank and their software partner immediately. They will provide support with the work required for planning and migrating to the QR-bill or eBill.

For further information on the QR-bill and eBill, invoice recipients should contact their bank. Invoice issuers and companies with hardware and software solutions should also contact their bank and/or software partner.
