Sure I would. No problem. Despite the real nasty life on minimum existence money (and it was brutal) I did appreciate it a lot. Saved my a*s at the time.
Your tax account will be flagged for possible investigation. If your taxation suddenly increases the men in suits will be looking at your recent income, and deciding what to do with you.

When you leave here you must file a final tax statement, and they will then release your pension fund. Your pension pot (fund) can be moved to a cantonal bank in a low low taxation canton, do you know which one is best for you? It depends on how big your pension pot is. Try Googling, you can save thousands!

You need to check how much of your pension you can take with you as it depends on where you plan to move to. Sometimes some of it has to stay here in a "vested benefits" account until you reach retirement age. Check with your pension provider.
Not quite true, if the Swiss government has an agreement with the country where the OP is moving to, the money, all of if, will stay in CH until the OP has reached the Swiss pension age. Now the bad news, when that times comes and if the OP takes the money out of the country it will be taxed, and if he is very unlucky it will be taxed in the OPīs new country as well.
Or in good english: "Say goodby to your Swiss pension!"
