The Federal Council has sent the new radio and TV law (RTVG) for consultation on Wednesday. The draft stipulates that everybody has to pay the fee - even if he does not own a TV. However, small companies should be exempt.

Thereby, the Federal council agreed to the parliamentary demands. According to the bill, companies with an annual business volume of less than CHF 500'000 should be exempt from radio and TV fees. This is the case for around 70 percent of all companies, disclosed the Federal Council in a press release.

Persons who receive public assistance should not be paying fees either, according to the federal government. A lot of new devices like smartphones, computers and tablets can receive radio and TV stations, which makes a change of system necessary. It is no longer clear which devices count as receiving sets. Also, with the new rules, the public won't have to pay for fee dodgers any longer.
