What should I consider before moving back to the UK from Switzerland?

With any international move, there is a wide range of elements to consider before finalising your move. The decision-making process in itself should cover all possible options, considering your life in Switzerland and your possible quality of life if you move back to the UK. Examine every aspect of your life, focussing on the bureaucratic elements too, to ensure you haven’t missed anything vital that may need your attention, such as:

  • Accommodation: The UK property market is fast-paced and expensive, so you should allow yourself ample time to get acquainted with your desired area and your housing needs.
  • Pension: You should check how the transfer of your pension functions when moving from Switzerland back to the UK.
  • Tax: Ensure you have notified HM Revenue and Customs of your plans to move back to the UK to avoid any misunderstandings.
  • Healthcare: Any healthcare arrangements you might have in Switzerland may become unnecessary when moving back to the UK, or an alternative private healthcare solution may be required.
  • Culture: If you have been living and working in Switzerland for several years, make sure to read up on current events as well as prepare yourself for a change in culture and language.
