Moving to France has become increasingly popular with those who are looking for a new life away from all the stresses and strains of modern life in Britain. Many people who are planning on moving to France are attracted by the promise of living in a rural idyll which they may have discovered when they were on holiday.

The Baby Boomer generation are leading the way when it comes to moving abroad.

German Cuisine: Beyond the Bratwurst!

On the world stage, German cuisine does not hold a  better reputation than the UK’s – and that’s saying something! However, just as there’s much more to UK cuisine than fish and chips, when if comes to German food – there’s a little more to it than the Bratwurst.

Probably due to our similar histories/cultures, there is a lot of a common ground between what we eat in the UK and what Germans eat – which will come as some comfort for anyone moving to Germany who doesn’t have the most adventurous palette.

There are, however, enough gastronomical differences to excite the food connoisseur moving to Germany. And whilst much of the food you’ll find in Germany will bear a passing resemblance to food you’ll find in the UK, things are often done a little differently.

For example, anyone moving to Germany will notice the prevalence of pickled vegetables, such as sauerkraut, which often accompany meals; Germans also love their breads, and therefore you’ll find a lot of bakeries, offering, for example, pretzels; and whilst it is not the be all and end all of German cuisine, the Bratwurst and other quality sausages also prevail in the country, making it an ideal place to live if that sort of thing is your cup of tea – or should be “stein of German beer”.

Whatever the reason for moving to germany – whether its the cuisine or otherwise – with Europe Remove we like to think that we take the hassle out of European removals.

Moving To Switzerland To Save On Tax

There has been a lot of speculation in the media about tax rises affecting those with a considerable amount of money in the bank, which is why many people maybe thinking about moving to Switzerland. For those who are considering relocating to Switzerland it is important to be aware that you will be required to relinquish your UK residency, so if you are in the enviable position of moving to Switzerland, there are some things regarding the tax consequences you should expect.

If you are moving to Switzerland, you become a tax resident if you are in the country for a minimum period of 30 days and you are working, or you have been in the country for 90 days without working. If you wish to remain a permanent citizen you must apply for a Swiss Residence Permit, and anyone from the European Union will receive beneficial treatment when it comes to obtaining these permits.

Once you are settled after moving to Switzerland, you will be granted a residency permit, but you must live in Switzerland to retain your residency status. If you are unable to spend 180 days a year in the country after relocating to Switzerland, you must ensure you do not spend more time in any one country than you do in Switzerland. Failure to meet these criteria will result in you not being considered as a Swiss resident.

If you are relocating to Switzerland you will of course take the best legal advice, and you will also want the experts to look after your move.

Top Tips On Moving To Switzerland

Whatever your reasons for moving to Switzerland, whether it is for a new job which means you have to relocate, or retirement, you will want to make a move that is as easy as possible. You will already be aware that planning a move to Switzerland entails a lot of work and planning, so here are a few extra little tips which will hopefully make your move that bit easier!

It’s surprising how many people forget to do this, which means they can be caught up in resolving the problem when they are living abroad.
