Covid-19: Support measures for businesses

The Federal Council has announced measures to support businesses in connection with Covid-19. With immediate effect, the Federal Customs Administration is implementing the following measures to relieve the burden on its corporate clients:

  • In the case of instalment payments, flexibility with regard to clients' financial situation
  • Reimbursement of cash deposits in the event of too much security being provided
  • Waiving of reminder fees and default interest 

The payment timeframes will not be changed. Customers generally have to comply with the applicable payment timeframes in the various areas.
