Changing Canton / Keeping your flat

Hello,

Is it possible to keep and sublet my flat in kanton ZH while I go work and live in another kanton ?
I might need to go for work (and I don't really want too so I want to keep a foot here)

Providing you inform your landlord/agency if you don't own the flat.

of course,

i thought perhaps that's not possible if i deregister to register at the new kanton

but actually i thought: perhaps i can stay registered here (it would be lower tax on top of that! and deduct transportation costs from tax declaration)

Re: Changing Canton / Keeping your flat

Are you EU or non-EU? Normally non-EU (at least early on) needs to live in the same canton as work, unless permission is obtained to live and work in different cantons.

If you want to stay where you are for tax purposes then you can't de-register and you'd need to keep some kind of address where all the official mail is sent. You might be able be a "wochenaufenthalter" - basically a weekday resident in one canton so long as you return to your home canton on the weekend.

Re: Changing Canton / Keeping your flat

Thanks!
