Re: 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

Cheers!

Luis
If your from the EU, the only benefit is social help benefits as now you can buy a house with a B. TBH I would rather not have to bother doing a tax return!
