Depending where in Schwyz. It's not true for all areas in the canton.
This.

Only Ausserschwyz has low(ish) taxes, and then (income dependent) only the Höfe Gemeinden will likely be lower than Zug.

The rest of Schwyz isn't much of a bargain tax-wise.

But lovely places to live. I'd take the Sihlsee over the Steuerparadis any day.

Re: East Londoner moving to Zug

Having a scooter and satnav it is going to be so great exploring all these places...

Hey has anyone ever done business with Swiss Insurance Partners?

We are considering them to advise on all insurances and our company pension.

Am I allowed to ask commercial questions on this forum?

Zug itself is really split into two categories (in my mind): Old town and Zugerberg, which are super, but rare to find anything and it goes super quick, and then the outskirts of town, which is plentiful, moves like lava and, again in my mind, isn't that great.
Not the main focus of this thread but, out of curiosity, why you say the outskirts of Zug "isn't that great"?

I like that east part, particularly those hills on both sides of Aegeristrasse. Very greenish, low traffic and noise, reasonably priced (for Zug standards!) houses and apartments, and quick access to town...

Thank you!

Yes that was my initial thought but we dug into this with the super helpful Canton Migration people and I do still need a work permit even as an EU citizen (tho I manifestly do not identify as such!!!! In shock news Essex man admits to voting Leave!).

As to B Permit and where we have to live, I am not so sure and you could be right. My company is clear it means we domicile in Canton Zug and you know we are quite happy to go along with that for our first year. We can always re-think when have a our feet under the table and know what way is up!

Thanks again

Pete

Are you sure he would get the job offer if not EU citizen? I doubt.

Re: East Londoner moving to Zug

Depends on the job and what his skills/experience are. We came over several years before the Free Movement Agreement came into force and had no problems, but then husband is a specialist in his field and only about half a dozen people in the world might have similar skills/experience.

1 in 1b (billion) situation then (7b is the world populations I think).

For a Risk job I doubt if they will recruit outside of the EU.

I really meant the Area around Siemens and towards the BMW garage. Masses and masses of non descript apartments with no lake view and no green.
