B and L quick question

hi guys,
just a quick one.

i am an EU member (hungarian passport)
when i arrived in zurich in march i went to the home affairs equivalent and got my L permit. it expires on the 13.09.2015
i have acquired a job last week with an indefinite contract. i also requested a letter of employment from the company HR department which states that i am a permanent employee.

my question is as follows:
should i wait for my L permit to expire and then apply for a new one a week before (on the 06.09.2015) or should i go immediately with the contract and documents acquired and apply?

i heard through the grapevine that if i apply immediately before my 3 months trial period is over i will get a 1 year L and only once that expired i will get a B...
is this true or heresay?

thanks guys

Re: B and L quick question

If you have an infinite contract you should get a B. L permits are usually only valid for a year at a time. I would take it now and get things started. As an EU national the trial period has nothing to do with it as far as I know. I've never heard of having an L first just because there's a trial period. All jobs usually have one so every EU national would be on L permits for the first year if that was the case.

Re: B and L quick question

You quite often can apply for the extension of your permit 2 months in advance so it seems to me that this is a perfect moment to extend and ask for a B!
