Loss of C permit to a B permit with expat assignment

Hi folks

I recently returned from a 1,5y expat assignment outside Switzerland.
When i left for my assignment, I was a C permit holder (7 years in Switzerland) and presented a letter from the company i work informing the authorities my permit was to be suspended and re-activated again.
Note that i did the de-registration process (abmeldung)
When i came back, authorities gave me a B permit claiming they had no record of such letter; so i am now starting all over again and subject to withholding taxation. Also i know i loose other benefits with this process - still learning which ones.

My company - they screwed up - are trying to get C permit back, but i don't have much faith.

This is a warning to all but I'd also like to hear your similar experiences
