Thank you for the help and links!
vmontalvao this is worrying news if that is the case as we based all our decisions upon taking this job that his pay would include the married tax tariff and child benefits
without these I dont think we can afford for him to remain in Switzerland as its quite a large amount of difference in money.
I know he gets paid 12 months not 13 so I dont think it is that either.
Hopefully his HR will get back to him today with some more information, we're due to ship out his furniture tomorrow and I dont know whether to delay in now!
Thank you again for your time
