Paying QR bills

Starting on 30 June 2020, you may start receiving bills in the new QR format. We have updated the payment systems in both BCV-net and BCV Mobile so that you can pay these bills quickly and easily – alongside bills in the current payment slip format.

What has changed?

  • All payment details are contained in the QR code on the bill
  • You can use your smartphone or a scanner to read the QR code
  • All account numbers will be in IBAN format

What are the advantages?

  • All payment information is not just contained in the QR code, but also printed on the payment slip, so you can read it even without a scanner
  • The black-and-white contrast has been improved, making the bills easier to read
  • A new feature will be added to BCV Mobile on 1 July 2020 allowing you to scan and pay QR bills quickly and easily – with no chance of making a mistake
  • BCV-net will also be updated so that you can enter QR bills with your smartphone or a code scanner
  • The features for making other types of payments (like BCV-top and standing orders) will still be available

What should you do to get ready?
