Double Tax Agreement

Hello,

I will be moving to Zurich this week to to start a 6 months contract as a software engineer. I was wondering if someone could help me as I am unsure if I am liable to pay an additional tax if I go back to the UK after 6 months. I will be taxed as a Suisse resident through a 3rd party payroll company and will be taxed 30% and my rate is 830CHF a day.

The recruiter has told me that I won't be taxed but a colleague has told me to stay in Switzerland for a year so I am not liable for any tax if I go back to the UK; otherwise I will had to pay the difference between UK and Suisse tax.

Thanks,
Jim.
