Re: The Brexit referendum thread: potential consequences for GB, EU and the Brits in

Just a question- as it is very much in the news in the UK- how many expats here claim child benefit for children still in the UK. Who pays it? And what is the difference for child-benefit in CH and in the UK, amount-wise?
Happy to do some research- but in the meantime, does anyone here have the answers?

How much is child benefit in the UK?

How much in CH?

Who pays if parent lives and works in CH and kids back in UK? Apparently there was quite a hoohaa in the UK some time ago, as it was publicised that people who work in Switzerland but have kids in the UK, would have to be paid child benefit, by reciprocal arrangement, by the UK tax payer at a much higher rate than locals, as CH CB is much higher. People were up in arms about this, as expats are considered (fairly most of the time) to have much higher salaries. Can't find a link to this effect though.
