B permit (EU) and taking 1 year off

Hi to all

Sorry if the question is a FAQ, I searched but could not find anything.
I just arrived to Switzerland in february 2011, got a B permit (I'm from EU) until february 2016. The permit is not tied to my current employer so I can change job and keep the permit.
I know the question is strange, but just curious. What happens to my permit if I decide to take 1 year off? like travelling? will it be still valid when I come back, assuming I come back before the expiring date?

thanks

Yes, but hand it in when you leave and reregister when you get back. The year out will not count towards your C permit.

Thanks for the quick reply! So I just need to:
- unregister (I won't keep renting an apartment)
- leave
- register when I come back? Nothing more?

thanks again..

in short, you're EU so unless the bilateral agreements change while you're gone, you can come back.

as Bob points out, the absence does not count towards your C permit time. Also the time out will affect your chances to get unemployment benefits.
