QR-bill to replace payment slips

The QR-bill will be introduced throughout Switzerland on 30 June 2020. The QR-bill simplifies the payment and issuing of invoices and replaces the orange and red payment slips after a transition period of two years. Find out here what the transition means for bill recipients and billers. The transition affects everyone who pays or issues invoices.

Bill recipients

What will change?

The identifying feature of the QR-bill is the Swiss QR Code. The bill recipient simply scans the Swiss QR Code in the payment part with a smartphone, computer camera, or hand scanner and can then approve the payment directly without any additional input.

All required information in the payment part of the QR-bill is also readable with the naked eye. This means that all paper-based payment procedures are still possible.

The three versions of the QR payment part

Three basic versions are available. Two of these versions take account of the established practice of the existing red and orange payment slips (IS and ISR).

The third option primarily supports the increasingly important payment transactions in Euros using the Structured Creditor Reference (SCOR), an international standard according to ISO 11649, which can be used in both Switzerland and the SEPA zone.
