QR-Bill Reference for Switzerland: What’s Available in Real Estate
One of the legal requirements for real estate in Switzerland when it comes to replacing the ISR payments in CHF or EUR currencies is that these payments forms should contain a payment slip with a QR code. This is where a QR-bill reference comes into play: you can use the QR-bill solution to enable you to print an invoice or a dunning form needed for lease-out contract conditions. The QR-bill print-out supports the QRR and SCOR procedures.
A solution is available in different releases to enable you to fulfil this requirement:

- SAP S/4HANA: As of SAP S/4HANA 1610 release, a solution in XFA1 also known as adobe forms is available for invoice and dunning form released via SAP Note 3035322.

What happens if there are multiple QR-IBAN entries for a company code?
If you have multiple QR-IBAN entries for a company code, you need to define which one should be selected. You can define the correct code by entering RE in the Application Indicator field of the Define Control Data for QR-Bill (T049Q) Customizing activity. Or you can verify the QR-IBAN you want to select is assigned to the house bank information in the posting parameters of the items in the invoice (or dunning if it’s OP).
If you need more than one entry, you need to assign a house bank with the expected QR-IBAN to the posting parameters of the condition in the contract.
