Office of Legal Proceedings and Bankruptcies
In Switzerland, bill payment deadlines (generally 30 days) are important to respect because the reminder and administrative costs associated with late payments are expensive and the consequences of non-payment can be serious. Therefore, we strongly recommend you contact the institution if you are in arrears and ask them to arrange an extension. The debt-collection office is very formal, and the longer it takes, the more expensive the fine will be. Contacting them within the time allowed can help you avoid the high cost of legal proceedings.
