In that case it's surely better to hold on to your B permit rather than move to a C permit? After 5 years living here, why not announce you are leaving, take a one month holiday, and come back and start all over again with a B permit? (in the case of an EU citizen)
As an EU B permit holder you are required to have the economic means to support yourself while here, as a C permit hold you are not....

With a C permit, you are entitle to social support from your community after your unemployment benefits run out, depending on the community you live in you may be also entitled to financial assistance to cover your health insurance when unemployed etc....

Re: No longer taxed at source

If you have children or a registered company, it pays to have the yearly declaration due to lots of deductibles.

If you are single, the quellensteuer method will work for you, if you make less than 110kchf per year.

Anything above 120kchf per year, you CAN ask for yearly declaration, while still paying quellensteuer. Some find that they pay less tax after the deductions.

I do not think being married automatically makes you pay more tax. It is the combined income of 2 which will bust the 150kchf magic balance point afterwhich you are on the steep curve of the tax rate.

Hi sir
I am not certain this part is true.
C-permits are usually valid for 5 years, though. You can stay in CH without being gainfully employed.

I think it is true & you will probably get another C permit after as well!

Thank God we received a C last year....after 10 fr..king years!
We almost did not get it, because the Gemeindehaus gave us incorrect requirements documentation.
Sneaky people I tell you.

There are definitely other benefits to having a C-permit. Owning property, having the right to rent the property out, going on your merry way to naturalization and voting are all benefits for getting off Quellensteuer.

Then you can have your say about 6 weeks of holiday on the ballot.

For me, if I hadn't made the choice to change my tax status by marrying I would have had to leave the country. So I continue to enjoy living and working here vs being jobless in America.
