PostFinance has set 30 September 2022 as the final date for the red (IS) and orange (ISR) inpayment slips. This move demonstrates support for digitized accounting and for the replacement products, QR-bill and eBill. PostFinance is working with the Swiss financial center to ensure that the transition process is smooth.
Led by SIX, the Swiss financial center has been harmonizing and digitizing Swiss payment transactions for several years. To this end, the payment methods used by financial institutions, which had previously differed, were standardized according to ISO 20022. The next phase was the launch of the QR-bill on 30 June 2020. This day marked the beginning of the transition period, during which payments can be made with IS and ISR as well as with the new QR-bill. PostFinance has now decided to withdraw the red and orange inpayment slips from the market as of 30 September 2022. This means that the current inpayment slips will be permanently discontinued for all Swiss banking customers.
