I was walking my dog yesterday in the city and a huge amount of snow fell and landed on my head an shoulders, actually cutting the side of my face as there was ice in it. Are there any laws about this sort of thing that anyone knows of? Thanks Barb

Hi, I've been working in Swiss Romande and returning home to my french residence (where my wife and children live) each weekend. I'll be working in Zurich soon and so, for the first 3 months anyway, it will be difficult for me to travel back home each weekend, so instead I will return home once every two weeks and then see if my family can move down with me. So I'm not sure if this affects my G permit and my tax situation. I'm taxed at source already and sure this will continue in Zurich, but I'm not sure if there will be questions about my G permit as it actually says on the permit that it is necessary to return home at least once per week. Any advice on this i.e. is my G permit ok for Zurich and returning home to France once every two weeks, would be gratefully received. Thanks, James

Hello all,I'm planning a trip to Germany in few weeks, and I was just wondering if anyone might know where I can change Swiss Francs into Euros where there isn't a huge fee?I don't have a proper bank account here yet so I guess I'll have to use a commercial moneychanger's (but when I tried that in Italy they took 20 PERCENT as a fee!!).Anyone know a good place?Thanks,jules

There has been some recent changes by UK Inland Revenue (HMRC) to UK pension regulations which affect every British expat living in France.This has provided an opportunity for British expats to take advantage of these changes for the benefit of themselves and their families, both now and in the future.In order to benefit from these changes expats in France have to take action as soon as possible as they are only available on request.We have created a simple to undertstand FREE guide that will explain both the changes and the benefits to British expats as well as the steps that need to be taken in order to benefit from the new regulations.This affects individuals who are currently recieving pension benefits and those who have pensions they have not yet drawn down.The new benefits can be obtained from all types of pensions includingAVC'soccupational pensions from previous employment,personal private pensions,executive pensions.SERPSFor the free guide simply email a request tofreepensionguide@gmail.com

Hi everyone! Does anyone know if the old Swiss bills are still any good and if I can use them. My Auntie from Italy said she would send me some money she found in her wallet, but was here last time in 1988! I sure hope they are! Heaven knows how much she is going to send. Would appreciate knowing. newgirlintown

It seems the Swiss are forever running to vote for this and that, or I am wrong here. Can someone tell me about how the system works? Would be great to know more. Thanks

I want to open a bank account in Switzerland, my husband was transferred here a few weeks ago. I don't really know anyone yet to help me with a problem. I know a little German, but not really enough technical words. I don't really want to stand there with a dictionary and look like a fool! Do you think most banks speak English?newgirlintown

I am leaving my apartment end of June, and everyone tells me that Switzerland is very picky with the cleaning process afterwards. Does anyone know about this. Thank you. Jenny

I have been living in Switzerland for 15 years and my father will move to a seniors home in the fall. I have lots of belongings that I would like to have here, but too many to take back with an empty suitcase. Does someone know how I can find out about home much and how I can get my stuff here? thank you
