possible to switch AVS offices ?


For a variety of reasons my accountant suggested that I switch AVS offices. Whilst I was accepted by the new office, and it appeared that initially the original office were prepared to accept this (they sent a letter stating that I should send a copy of my certificate from the new office so they could close their records) they have now stated that the earliest I can switch is the end of 2009.

DOes anyone have any insight into this - are all the AVS offices run independantly, even though they may be seperated only be a few km's? Do they have their own P&L's etc? When I started this I mistakenly thought they were all the same, but now find - potentially to my cost it appears - that this is not the case. Anyone have any information on how the AVS is structured in Switzerland - sorry for the boring quesiton

Re: possible to switch AVS offices ?

  • Employees are administered at the AHV/AVS fund to which their employer is attached. This can be
    * either the Cantonal AHV/AVS where the employer is located.
    * or a special AHV/AVS fund managed by an industry association.
  • Self-employed are administered at the AHV/AVS fund of the commune or canton where they live.
Usually a change of AHV/AVS fund only occurs when you change employer.
