Moving districts for short term

Dear EF’ers, how are you? Happy Easter to all of you.

I’d like to pick your brain on a practical topic please;

Unfortunately I lost my job. That’s why I gave a notice to my apartment and leaving the flat by the end of June 2020.

But my company will still pay me in July/august 2020 and, I need to be registered in an apartment to get these last 2 salaries ☹ - I guess this is totally legal what my company asks me.

I was thinking about taking my registration to my friends apartment – where he is also a tenant – for two months only. Then I will permanently move back to Turkey.

This means change of districts but still within canton ZRH.
Anyone here who has any practical information? what should I be doing and how can I reduce the bureaucracy?
Thanks a lot

Re: Moving districts for short term

Easy. If it's within Stadt Zurich info is here:



https://www.stadt-zuerich.ch/prd/en/...mt/adress.html


When moving house and changing cities, you need to go to the local Gemeinde where you are currently living and tell them that you will move house. Give them the details. Then you go to the new Gemeinde and register there. The thing is, this costs money, and may not be necessary if it's temporary and you are leaving anyway...



They may allow you to do a 'temporary' change, or you might need to do a formal move (which involves de-registering at one placce and re-registring at the new place)...



Personally, I'd just leave it and do it when you actually move in June - your plan might change by then - you can also de-register and stay as a 'tourist' for a period of time - but I'm not sure how that works with your salary etc.


I'm not 100% sure what your employer is asking you to do is necessary - are you going to work out your notice period or are you no longer actually working ? If you are not actually working, then they could finalise everything now and pay you a larger lump-sum and sever the contract immediately...



Yes, it's perfectly fine to move house - you go to the current Gemeinde first, let them know the details, and then register at the new place.


What I do recommend is having your mail properly forwarded with Swiss Post when you do move - so that everything is sent through to you and nothing gets missed.

There's nothing you need to do right now about the move, as long as it's within the same Canton. If you are non-EU and need to change Cantons then that's more complicated (you need a reason, and you need their permission first). But within the Canton, it's very straightforward...

Would they then likely not get taxed heavily for that month?

There is no problem registering at your friends address, you'll probably have to pay a fee to change your details at the gemeinde. Will you be staying in Switzerland during this time? If not you'll still have to continue to pay health insurance and return to de-register.... maybe that would off-set the possibility of being paid in one lump sum when you actually finish working?

Re: Moving districts for short term

Thanks, I will be on "garden leave" during those months thus will not work. But yes, they avoid full payment due to higher tax in both sides, I believe.
Though, i would wish i can do all this online, and not be in CH to bare the high costs, but i guess I have to be here to move the registration in June, and then come back to de-register permanently and move back to Turkey, right ?
