Oerlikon and the area just north of Oerlikon (what is that area called EFers?) or Dübendorf - kindly note you won't fall in love with those places, but they are cheaper and close to the airport.
I second this as already mentioned. And Wiedikon, not too far from the lake and charming (plus lots of italian immigrants).

Get a cheap and cheerful starter flat and you can move later.

You mean Seebach?
And also the Glattpark area, it's a bit cheaper and maybe not so charming but with tram 10 one can quickly reach Oerlikon. Part of it is still zone 110 (urban area for tickets).

Glattpark, that is it! Danke Seebach also has those nice new apartments that are affordable along the train tracks ...

Re: Remote Job Offer - where to live?

Or just outside Zürich, with much lower taxes (Wallisellen, Dietlikon, Bassersdorf) and still very good connections to Zürich

I thought that difference in municipality would not apply to my taxes due to the withholding tax being applied?

If you earn less than 120'000 a year, then yes

Re: Remote Job Offer - where to live?

Not sure it’s a good idea to get your hopes up too soon in regards to where you want to live.
As explained before, your B permit will be linked to the canton where your employer/representative is, thus you’ll be probabky starting out there and then ask permission to change canton,
First find out which canton it is.

Again, y’all please correct me if I’m wrong.

I need to choose the canton for them to issue the remote contract, I can pick anywhere.

Anyway the canton will be Zurich, so I am only discussing towns around Zurich area

I was using this calculator https://swisstaxcalculator.estv.admin.ch/#/home

and even for less than 120k it was giving me different amount based on municipality.

Because for Swiss people it would be. Only for lowly B and L permits is there no difference

No permission needed. As an EU OP’s permit would be valid in the whole of Switzerland. In case of a canton change, a new permit is simply re-issued with the same expiry date in the new canton (against a fee or course).

Thank you! Could you tell me if there is any Salary Calculator that applies the same rate?

This is good information to me as it means it makes no difference where in the Zurich Canton I decide to live?

Should have specified, based on my calculation the budget for the 2.5 to 3.5 flat goes between 1500 and 2000.

I really would like to avoid moving to a cheap flat and moving again in 1 year time, especially because compared to London, I've noticed flat here are unfurnished, therefore we'll need to invest a consistent sum to buy furnitures, so I would prefer get a place I like right off the bat, and then get a better paying job later down the road to make sure it does not impact my finances excessively.

Re: Remote Job Offer - where to live?

Then you'll definitely need more time, surely not a month. It takes a while getting to know the areas, and the prices, and the application procedures... plus actually waiting for the opportunities, and visiting... I've seen you have another thread about temporary accomodation, what you write there makes sense.
Still, be ready to compromise a bit

As a side note, I would not be too worried about furniture (or, not too much). Built-in items, like kitchen, fixed appliances and wall cupboards, are always part of a property; the rest can be moved or sold if needed.

Check https://www.lohncomputer.ch/ for an approximation of all salary deductions (including withholding tax) and https://en.comparis.ch/steuern/quell...echner/default for a cantonal comparison of withholding tax rates

Re: Remote Job Offer - where to live?

If you can live anywhere than I would move to Scandinavia! Which has many similarities to Switzerland + your partner will feel at ease, get a job easily!! and you'll have two incomes and less stress.

Re: Remote Job Offer - where to live?

Thanks everyone,

I guess that because of the withholding tax it doesn't really matter where I end up living around Zurich, so it will probably be a matter of finding a decently sized and priced house to start my new life

Especially Denmark & Norway ...

Similarities to Switzerland? The only one I can see is high cost of living. Particularly Denmark is the opposite of Switzerland. The dark side.
