2022 fiscal equalization between the Confederation and the cantons – Review of data processing by cantonal and federal offices

Key facts

The total volume of fiscal equalization (NFE) for 2022 is CHF 5,305 million, representing a year-on-year increase of 1.7% (CHF 5,215 million). This increase is the result of the partial legislative revision that entered into force on 1 January 2020, which changed the calculation of the financing allocated to the financially weak cantons and the division of the funds paid in by the Confederation and the financially strong cantons. Temporary mitigation measures totalling around CHF 200 million will also be paid out to the financially weak cantons in 2022.
