QR-bill – payment slips

The new, future-oriented QR-bill enables the different interest groups to meet the challenges of digitisation and regulation in an efficient way. Banks, software providers and other interested parties will in the coming months develop solutions tailored to different user needs enabling the easy integration of the QR-bill into invoicing and payment processes.

The QR-bill can be introduced only when billers have converted their systems to the ISO 20022 standard across Switzerland, which is scheduled to happen by mid-2018. Makers of accounting software and ERP systems will need to offer their customers appropriate solutions until the end of 2017 if possible.

The "Swiss Implementation Guidelines QR-bill" form the basis of the QR-bill's implementation. Note to chapter 3.4 (Technical specifications): Mapping of the data in the Swiss QR Code in the ISO 20022 pain.001 message is described in the Swiss "Implementation Guidelines for Credit Transfers" (pain.001). 

Design leeway for billers
