What is the corporate RTV fee?

Since 1 January 2019, the new device-independent fee for radio and TV has been levied on households and businesses.

It replaces the receiver-dependent levy, which expired at the end of 2018. Companies subject to VAT in Switzerland (with their registered office, place of domicile or permanent establishment in Switzerland) with a global turnover of at least CHF 500 000 are subject to the RTV fee. They automatically receive an annual invoice from the Federal Tax Administration.

Further information on the RTV fee can be found on the following pages.
