Annual invoices  are issued between February and October as soon as all turnover data is available. The fee is payable within 60 days of billing (SR 784.40).

Please note that you have 60 days to pay the invoice. If this period is too short for you or you cannot pay the amount at once, please contact the Debt Collection Division of the Swiss Federal Tax Administration:

The annual fee is determined according to the tariff levels defined by the Federal Council in Art. 67b RTVO, even if the company is deleted from the VAT register in the course of the year (for which the fee is due).

If your company already has access to FTA SuisseTax and authorization for the Radio and tv fee sector (UA RTV), you will conveniently receive the invoice on FTA SuisseTax. If however, your company does not use FTA SuisseTax yet, the invoice is sent to you via mail. If you would like the invoice to be sent to an address other than the VAT correspondence address, you can inform us of this here

The FTA sends out the bill for the annual radio and television fee over the period February to October.

Invoices for 2021 will be sent on the following dates:

  • 20.03.2021

The FTA is implementing a new invoice standard. You will now receive the invoice for the Radio and Television Fee for businesses as a QR invoice. QR stands for "Quick Response". You will find all details such as IBAN, reference number, billing address, etc. as before. The QR code contains all billing information. Scanning the QR code enables automatic accounting balancing. The manual entry of payment data is no longer necessary. You can pay the QR bill via e-banking, by payment order or at the counter.
