Leaving CH permanently

Dear EFers, I need your recommendations, please.

My wife and I are living in CH since late 2014.
Now, we have decided to move back to Turkey, since I am out of the job and it will be easier back there.
We will start the paperwork for deregistration next week, effective as of the end of the month.
We have already let someone took over our apartment.

We will go to the townhouse, and start the procedure, and then ask our bank to send our 2. and 3. pillars back to Turkey, since Turkey is out of EU/EFTA.

Can you let me know if there is anything I should do or don't do? Any tips are welcome! Thanks

Be sure to check the tax implications on the pension payout. Switzerland is likely to take something like 6.5% at source on 2nd pillar, but the risk is on the Turkish side. May have to do with timings of registration in Turkey.

Also, I would keep an eye on the FX and make sure you don't end up owning a heap of worthless TL.
