Converting L to B permit

Hi there,

I am in the process of renewing my L permit, but this time I'm converting to a B permit. I've migrated from UK to Kanton Schwyz and Schwyz Migrationsamt have asked me to provide proof of deregistration from the UK. Do you know where I can get such a thing? I'm not really clear what they're asking for.

Cheers!

Are you required to register and de-register in UK? If not, you
might have to explain to them. They might require you to
provide some other type of documentation.

Fore example, the wanted a criminal record for me, and I couldn't provide one since I have not been convicted of a crime. I explained this, and
they said OK without a question.

Re: Converting L to B permit

You have to notify the tax authorities in the UK that you leaving the country with form P85 http://www.hmrc.gov.uk/nonresidents/fagp85.shtml. I have done this, but I didn't take a copy - you think this would be enough? The form is about claiming paid tax to the UK treasury, it's not deregistration as such. This doesn't seem to be what they are asking for. I went to the Gemeindehaus and asked them exactly what they want and they said they want a deregistration form from the UK authorities. They said that they require it if I want my work permit...

I'd be interested to hear from any UK expats.

I went from L to B permit and this was not requested for me in Canton Geneva. Not sure what they are after...?

I am also a UK expat as well.
