Re: End of the 'expat' benefits ??

The guidelines of the Zurich tax office are quite clear on this: If you're on an open ended contract, you're not supposed to enjoy expat benefits at all. Hence, I'm sure you're out of luck for 2004 and the following years.

I don't know about 2002 and 2003 though.
You are clear for 2002 but they could well bite at you for 2003... And you are quite correct that there are strict conditions attached to expat privileges...

The comment that they are illegal is however entirely new to me as this is an international agreement to allow free flow of executives to the benefit of international companies in various locations worldwide and not something the Swiss dreamt up overnight...
