C Permit holder staying abroad 4 months

Hi All,
I am a C Permit holder on a UK passport and have been doing remote home office for my Swiss company for almost 3 months. It could be 4 months before I am back in CH, but my Swiss boss today said he thinks after 3 months people are required to inform the Gemeinde even as a Swiss citizen (he was not so sure but he said normally they don't notice).

My question is, is that true: one needs to inform the Gemeinde after 3 months that he is abroad? Of course I realise 6 months is the max for a C permit to be allowed abroad continuously.

Many thanks.

Re: C Permit holder staying abroad 4 months

Why would you need to inform them? So long as you get back before the 6 months is up it should be fine. If you're going to go over that then you should talk to them about it.

I can’t remember where I read it, but I saw something recently about a Swiss National getting a telling off from their Gemeinde for not informing them that they’d be out of the country for an extended period (don’t remember how many months) - I was surprised

I have a feeling that was over 6 months or a year perhaps
