Switzerland – The country to make and save money
There are many things about Switzerland that make it a unique little gem and well worth considering a move to. A strong economy, high income, good quality of living… It is one of the most popular destinations for expats. And if you are addicted to chocolate and cheese, then pack your suitcase right now and jump onto the first flight!
The standard of living…
…is one of the highest in the world. Never far from the top of any survey, the country offers its residents exceptional well-being and quality of life. Surrounded by amazing natural landscape, the pollution is very low, the outdoor activities are varied, and depression is close to zero. It’s also right in the middle of Europe. From Zurich, Germany is an hour away, France and Italy are 2. Everything else is a few hours by flight. The trains are all on time, and the transportation both intra-city and inter-city is very good.
Quality education and strong healthcare system
The education system in Switzerland is considered to be among the best internationally. There are both public and international schools in the country, along with quite a few universities and higher education institutions. In addition of that, Switzerland’s healthcare system is considered to be among the best in the world. It is mandatory for new settlers to obtain healthcare insurance within the first three months of residence. 2 important factors to take in consideration if you are moving with your family.
High income + low tax = savings
Switzerland is home to almost the highest percentage of expats in the world, and they come for a reason. Low taxes and high wages attract many people to Switzerland, and the low corporation tax attracts many multinational companies so there are lots of opportunities to succeed. You may have heard that Switzerland is an expensive place to live. This is true, a challenge many expats encounter when living in Switzerland is the high cost of living. However, with the low tax rate and the increase in wages you are very likely to find yourself with more disposable income than you did back home.
Open to expatriates
More than 20% of Switzerland’s population consists of foreign workers, both temporary and resident. The multi-national character of the country is also reflected in its four official languages: French, German, Italian and Romansh. English is also spoken by the majority of people and English speakers are able to find work easily. However, it may make integration into the community easier if you speak and understand the specific language of your canton. Switzerland is also part of Schengen treaty. This means citizens of visa deprived countries (like India / China) can roam around freely in the EU if they’re living/ working in Switzerland.
