Headline: Federal Council decision on financial equalization payments in 2021 – government welcomes correction for 2021 and expects regulation to be amended from 2022

The Federal Council passed the financial equalization payments for 2021 today, Wednesday. Based on a motion by the government council, it decided to correct the compensation payments to the canton of Bern in the amount of CHF 28 million. At the same time, the Federal Council is holding out the prospect of an amendment to the Ordinance on Financial and Burden Equalization (FiLaV). This is intended to take into account a one-off effect from 2017 when calculating the compensation payments for the years 2022 and 2023 to the canton of Bern. The Government Council notes the decisions of the Federal Council with satisfaction. It assumes that the proposed amendment to the ordinance with regard to the determination of the compensation payments will come into force in 2022.
