Parliament adjusted and approved the 2023 budget on 8 December. Overall, there is a financing deficit of CHF 4.8 billion. This includes extraordinary expenditure of CHF 5.7 billion.
Budgeted expenditure amounts to CHF 86.2 billion, of which CHF 5.7 billion is extraordinary. The Confederation is reckoning on receipts of CHF 81.3 billion. This results in a financing deficit of CHF 4.8 billion, which is attributable primarily to the rescue mechanism for the electricity industry.
A financing deficit of just under CHF 700 million is expected in the ordinary budget. The debt brake requirements will thus be met.
