The Zurich cantonal Council for all administrative units have a clear mandate to move away from paper-billing. Beginning in April, 2019, all of the internal administrative allocations are to be handled paperless. Also in the case of external invoices, it should go in the future without paper.
The digital invoice exists in the Zurich administration for years – at least in theory. Because still always be handled, in practice, almost all of the allocations with a paper invoice. Of the approximately 301'000 external and 12'000 internal bills in 2017, down from 93 percent. This means that the booking centre had to scan the relevant documents for processing individually.
According to a communication from the government of today is Wednesday, this is due to the fact that the administrative units could decide for themselves whether and what bills they wanted to electronically send and receive. With this freedom of choice should now be brought to an end. Starting in April, the internal administrative allocations should be made paperless.
save paper and postage
Also in the external invoices it should go in the future, and without paper: Up to the beginning of 2020, all departments must make the necessary arrangements, so you can process invoices electronically.
The governing Council expects a more environmentally friendly and lower bill transport. Paper procurement, printing, packaging and postage could be saved. The internal processing costs could be reduced up to three francs per document. The cost would be halved.
This extension of the electronic invoice exchange is one of 28 projects, which has made the government in its digital strategy for the administration. (sda/pu)
