Headline: Federal Council decision on 2021 compensation payments – The Executive Council welcomes the correction for 2021 and expects an amendment to the ordinance from 2022

The Federal Council approved on Wednesday (November 11, 2020) the compensatory payments for the year 2021. It endorsed a proposal from the Executive Council and approved a correction of 28 million francs to the amounts to be paid to the canton of Bern. In addition, the Federal Council says it is considering amending the ordinance on financial equalization and burden compensation. It will take account of a one-off phenomenon dating back to 2017 in the calculation of the compensatory payments due to the canton of Bern for the years 2022 and 2023. The Executive Council is pleased to note the decisions of the Federal Council. It assumes that the amended ordinance will enter into force in time to set the compensation payments due in 2022.
