2022 budget wrapped up


Parliament adjusted and approved the 2022 budget on 16 December. Overall, there is a financing deficit of CHF 2.3 billion. This includes extraordinary expenditure of CHF 3.2 billion.

Budgeted expenditure amounts to CHF 80.9 billion, of which CHF 3.2 billion is extraordinary. The Confederation is reckoning on receipts of CHF 78.6 billion. This results in a financing deficit of CHF 2.3 billion, which is attributable primarily to the Confederation's measures to deal with the COVID-19 crisis.

A deficit of just under CHF 600 million is expected in the ordinary budget. The debt brake requirements will thus be met.
