Budget balanced but significant need for adjustment in the financial plan years 2024 to 2026


On 29 June 2022, the Federal Council defined the figures for the 2023 budget with the integrated task and financial plan for 2024 to 2026. For 2023, the budget including the debt brake is still balanced. However, this is only because extraordinary costs of CHF 1.7 billion were recorded in connection with people fleeing from Ukraine. From 2024 onwards, the debt brake requirements will not be met, owing to unfunded additional expenditure for the Armed Forces or climate protection, for example. The need for adjustment could be up to CHF 1.3 billion. However, this figure is subject to considerable uncertainty.
