Questions on Leaving Switzerland within one year to a non-EU country

Dear all,

I have been worked in Switzerland around 10 months since middle of June, 2019 and now decided to leave Switzerland to my homeland (non-EU).

I have several questions which may need your help and advices:

1. How long is the whole process od deregistration (bank, insurance, tax, permit, etc.)
2. In my contract, there is one relocation fee and it says that: If the employee decides to leave the company within the first 12 months of the employment, the above mentioned costs needs to be reimbursed. Does that include the notice period? Let us say: I joined the company on 16th June, 2019 and handed in the leave application in 17th May, 2020 and the notice period is one month, then should I pay back the relocation fee?
3. Regarding the tax return, 1st pillar and 2nd pillar, can I request reimbursement withint one-year working in Switzerland? Should all these reimbursement made in person when I am now in Switzerland or can I do it overseas via Email and calls?

Thanks and regards,

Laila

Re: Questions on Leaving Switzerland within one year to a non-EU country

Thereís more than plenty if not more than you could ever read on here about getting out your Pillars and how you do that, you just have to take a little time to read and sift out what is relevant to you. But from my experience I would ask all the questions and get all the forms and documents you need done and completed where possible BEFORE you leave. Handling administrative stuff like this, left behind in CH, from the other side of the world? Wish you luck with that.

You will not get your 2nd Pillar paid to you until you are well out of CH and in the country where you are going, with Visa, proof of residency and proof of registration with your commune there (even if there isnít such a thing as a commune, you will have to find a way to provide something: no complete papers and not done to the exact requirement, no payment - itís that simple). The release of and payment of your 2nd Pillar takes 6-12 months from the date you left your employer.

I guess you dislike CH intensely, otherwise youíd have just stuck it out to do the 12 months then there would be no grey areas. Iíd still advise you do that if possible. Save yourself the hassle because if thatís what you signed, then thatís what will be expected of you. Bit late to think about that now once you have handed in your notice.

1st Pillar, no idea. I didnít bother. But again - you can read it on here if you look. And I guess you didnít open a 3rd pillar as you havenít asked.

I would suggest a bit more understanding because we don't know the full circumstances of the OP leaving CH.

OP - Your relocation fees can be recovered but something you should discuss with the company and highlight whether the same can be waived off in good faith. Usually does not include notice period unless specifically mentioned.
