The essentials

A new invoicing method: the QR-bill

The QR-bill, defined according to ISO 20022 standards, facilitates payments thanks to automated data processing. It enables you to both issue and pay invoices. It contains a Swiss QR-code (Quick Response Code is a two-dimensional barcode) which has all the important information relating to its payment.

The QR-bill will replace the red and orange payment slip, which will be definitively discontinued on 30 September 2022.

You can continue to use your usual payment method to pay your QR-bills:

  • BCGE Netbanking*
  • BCGE Mobile Netbanking*
  • Payment software
  • Quick order*

*No steps to be taken

Steps to be taken

If you scan the payment slips

  • Obtain a reader capable of reading and interpreting the data in the QR-bill (ask your supplier for details)

If you use an accounting or payment software

  • Save all account numbers in IBAN1 format in your software
  • Check with your software supplier to make sure that the processing of the QR-bill is integrated into your software
1The IBAN (International Bank Account Number) is an internationally standardised account number format. It facilitates the input, transmission and processing of payment data.
