For the cantons sub-sector, a positive ordinary result was seen for the second time in a row. Ordinary revenue grew mainly due to an increase in the tax revenue of natural and legal persons. Furthermore, in the asylum sector, the Confederation’s allowances to the cantons increased considerably. In contrast, the dynamism in the growth of revenue slowed down slightly through the normalised profit distribution of the SNB compared with the previous year.
