Re: Permits and leaving CH (but maybe coming back)

Yes tax is one thing but there are some others. If you apply at your Gemeinde you can have an extension which permits you to leave for a total of 24 months. During this 24 months you need not enter Switzerland or live here but you need to have a return address and somewhere to collect your mail. You are dropped from the requirement to complete the tax returns for any complete year which is within the 24 month period...

"Officially" returning within that 24 month period is not exactly advisable as it starts a tax clock going ie you need to fill in the forms which by the way you do even if you did not work within that year and are resident here...

I would suggest you remain registered here at a friends address claim unemployment and then if and when you find something in another country formally deregister.
