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!
If you are planning to apply for residency in Switzerland, you will have to relinquish your British residency. Don’t forget to let the Inland Revenue know that you are moving. Once you have gone through the process of relocating to Switzerland and are settled, inform the taxation office in Switzerland that you have arrived. Do some research into what this entails, because the last thing you want is to get on the wrong side of the law, which may result with you being hit with a fine.
It may sound silly to point this out, but when you leave your home in the UK, don’t forget to let the relevant utilities companies know that you are no longer a resident at that address. 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. And finally, when you are planning the logistics of moving to Switzerland or even moving to Belgium for that matter, don’t forget to get in touch with European Removal Experts, the experts in home moves to locations all over Europe.
