Fiscal equalization: Federal Council ap-proves definitive equalization payments for 2023


In 2023, the fiscal equalization payments will rise by CHF 290 million year on year to reach CHF 5.6 billion. The Federal Council approved the equalization payments during its meeting on 16 November 2022 within the framework of a partial revision of the Ordinance on Fiscal Equalization and Cost Compensation (FECCO). The cantons of Basel Stadt, Zug and Appenzell Innerrhoden posted the biggest increase in the resource index. The indices of the cantons of Schwyz, Neuchâtel and Ticino dropped the most.

Negative amounts = canton receives money
Positive amounts = canton pays money

Example: In 2023, the canton of Aargau received CHF 755 per inhabitant from the fiscal equalization system.
The canton of Zug paid CHF 2864 per inhabitant into the fiscal equalization system in 2023.
