Moving to Zurich


Im new to this forum so apologies if I am not following proper edicit just yet. Anyway I am hoping some on here can help me. I have a potential job offer to work in Zurich relocating from the UK. Like everyone else I have heard stories about how expensive Switzerland in general can be. What I want to know is genrally the costs of things. I am a single guy and will be there on my own. How much would a fairly decent one bedroom apt in a nice area cost per month? Is a salary of CHF125k enough to live on fairly comfortabley? What is the deal with the insurance out there? How does the tax system operate, from what I can gather there is a canton tax and a federal tax? Are there any other hidden extras I need to consider?

Thanks for any info.....

Re: Moving to Zurich

Hi, the best way to get the details on the cost of living in Switzerland is to search this forum. There is an incredible wealth of information.
I am new to this country, but I can tell you that it's even more expensive than I imagined.
You can start by going to Daily Life forum, then click on a tag : cost of living (at the top of the page.)
sorry couldn't be more informative.

Re: Moving to Zurich


I am moving to Zurich soon too! I have posted a thread asking about taxes etc, with some of the tax percentages that I was given.
