Chart of Accounts and Functional Classification

Chart of Accounts HAM2 and Functional Classification (supersedes Appendices A and B of the Manual, Harmonized Accounting Model for the Cantons and Municipalities HAM2 dated January 2008)

Most recent version

To simplify working with the Chart of Accounts and the Functional Classification, you will find under Index HAM2 a subject index and a classified index. At present the key words are available only for the Functional Classification. 

As the cities and municipalities have even more detailed needs, the Inter-cantonal Coordination Group HAM2 of the Conference of Cantonal Supervisors of Municipal Finances has expanded the Chart of Accounts and the Functional Classification in the Manual HAM2. Parts of the expansion have been declared mandatory, in order to achieve the greatest possible harmonization among the municipalities in the various Swiss cantons. The details can be found on the Conference’s homepage (www.kkag-cacsfc.ch).
