At the end of June 2020, the QR invoice was introduced in Switzerland, replacing the red and orange payment slip. In AbaNinja you can easily create and send invoices with the QR payment element.
To generate a QR invoice, you will need the so-called QR-IBAN and, depending on the bank, your customer identification number. You receive this data from your bank and it can be stored in AbaNinja under Finances > Banking for the respective bank account.
Note: The customer identification number is not required by all banks (e.g. PostFinance). It is therefore also possible to enter only the QR-IBAN.
Note: The QR-IBAN differs from other IBANs by the number 3 in the fifth position (CH893...). The number range from 3000 to 3999 was explicitly defined here for the QR-IBAN.
Existing bank account
If you already have a bank account in AbaNinja but do not yet use QR Invoice, you do not need to create a new bank account for QR Invoice, but can simply edit the existing bank account.
All you need to do is activate the Payment slip switch under Finances > Banking > Bank account and enter your QR IBAN and, if applicable, your customer identification number.
Create QR invoice
If you have activated the Payment slip switch on the bank account under Finances > Banking and have stored your QR IBAN, you do not need to do anything else. AbaNinja automatically creates the QR payment section for the next customer invoice with this bank account.
Note: The QR payment section in AbaNinja complies with the specifications of the SIX Group (PaymentStandards.CH).
Note: In AbaNinja, the QR invoice is only supported for CHF (Swiss francs). QR invoices in foreign currencies are not planned.
