Well, its (was?) a popular spot similar to Dubai these days and many ambitious do/did live there for work or business and even more have just bank accounts there… some of us here on the forum might have been even around during the golden old days of banking which are all gone today.How many of you guys are from Switzerland? sounds like you are a few around here
That seems to be above average salary there.
so you will need to read all his posts again.. you missed a serious important part which will make your post not valid!i have read the thread and him moving to switzerland will get him a saving of arround 90k in taxes.
So my realistic question was since he was looking for lugano which isn't cheap either how much of these 90k will stay after adding all the additional costs he will have to pay which he currently has not.
You clearly never lived in switzerland for a time to realise what costs can come to you which are horrible high compared to other european countries when trying to uphold your standard
There is no mistake when even swiss people ask these question because the world is not just black and white
If you compare Switzerland with Germany, India, UK, Romania, Bulgaria or the Bahamas - I agree 100% it is ******* expensive and not worth to even consider a relocation.
Most of homes in Switzerland have some form of communal heating system, either multi-tiered homes, or apartments or buildings.I would recommend you to spend in Switzerland in winter from December to February, for example, because then there are sub-zero temperatures and snow. Then you get an idea of the heating costs and costs for a winterized car.
