From London to Zurich

Hi there,

I'm from Milan but have been living and working for the past 3 years and a half in London, where 2 years ago I met my boyfriend. Last year he was offered a job in Zurich so moved to Zurich, temporarily at the beginning but turns out we love it here (and it's close to my home town, which is a great plus!). For a year now we've been back and forth and managed to be together every weekend but the situation is becoming slightly unsustainable, so I've decided to look at options for me to move to Zurich. And as I had expected it's not as easy as it was to move to London!

If I keep my job in London (which I can turn into a consultancy job) am I allowed to live in Zurich, can I apply for Swiss residency but still work in London and go to London twice a month? And would I have to pay taxes?

If I decide to leave my job and take a sabbatical to spend in Zurich, learning German and looking for a job, given my boyfriend lives here and has a residency permit, can I live in Zurich for a year without working?

Thanks for any thoughts you can share!!
