Swiss QR Bill for .NET

Open-source .NET library to generate Swiss QR bills. Try it yourself and create a QR bill.


The Swiss QR bill is the QR code based payment format that started on 30 June, 2020. The payment slip is sent electronically or presented online in most cases. It can still be printed at the bottom of an invoice or added to the invoice on a separate sheet. The payer scans the QR code with his/her mobile banking app to initiate the payment and then just needs to confirm it.

If the invoicing party adds structured bill information (VAT rates, payment conditions etc.) to the QR bill, the payer can automate the booking in accounts payable. The invoicing party can also automate the accounts receivable processing as the payment includes all relevant data including a reference number. The Swiss QR bill is convenient for the payer and payee.

The Swiss QR bill library:

  • generates QR bills as PDF, SVG, PNG and EMF files
  • generates payment slips (210mm by 105mm), payment part (148mm by 105mm), A4 sheets or QR code only
  • is multilingual: German, French, Italian, English, Romansh
  • validates the invoice data and provides detailed validation information
  • adds or retrieves structured bill information (according to Swico S1)
  • parses the invoice data embedded in the QR code
  • is easy to use (see example below)
  • is small and fast
  • is free – even for commercial use (MIT License)
  • runs on all Windows version of .NET: .NET Core 2.0 or higher, .NET Framework 4.6.1 or higher, Universal Windows Platform 10.0.16299
  • see home page for more examples and other library versions (e.g. platform-independent ones)

Getting started

  1. Create a new Visual Studio project for .NET Core 3.x (File > New > Project... / Visual C# > .NET Core > Console App (.NET Core))

  2. Add the library via NuGet:

    Either via Project > Manage NuGet Packages... / Browse / search for qrbill / Install

    Or by running a command in the Package Manager Console

Install-Package Codecrete.SwissQRBill.Windows -Version 3.3.0s
  1. Add the code:
using Codecrete.SwissQRBill.Generator;
using System;
using System.IO;

                // output format
                Format = new BillFormat
                    Language = Language.DE,
                    GraphicsFormat = GraphicsFormat.SVG,
                    OutputSize = OutputSize.QrBillOnly

            // Generate QR bill
            byte[] svg = QRBill.Generate(bill);

            // Save generated SVG file
            const string path = "qrbill.svg";
            File.WriteAllBytes(path, svg);
            Console.WriteLine($"QR bill saved at { Path.GetFullPath(path) }");
