All payments must be made in Swiss Francs (CHF) and received net of any banking fees.

The bank advises as follows: When making payments within Europe, please always use the IBAN and BIC to avoid additional third-party charges and to ensure the amount is credited to the beneficiary more quickly and securely. We also recommend using IBAN for all Swiss payment transactions.


Mediator’s fee

The hourly rate lies in principle between CHF 200 and CHF 500, daily fees are between CHF 1500 and 2500.
The parties and the mediator may agree on other rates.

Annual abeyance fees for cases stayed for more than three months

SCAI charges an annual abeyance fee of CHF 2’000, to be borne equally by the parties, for cases that are stayed for more than three months. The abeyance fee is aimed at covering the Secretariat’s additional costs in monitoring the developments in each case that has been stayed, in particular through periodic notifications and requests for information to the parties and the mediators. This fee will be charged by SCAI as a requisite to maintain the case open.
