FS model (national)

The FS model (financial statistics) is used to guarantee the comparability of the finances of the units of the Public Administration at national level. It is based on the recommendation issued in 2008 by the cantonal ministers for finance for a “harmonised accounting model for the cantons and communes” (HAM 2) and also some elements of the Confederation’s new accounting model (NAM).
