Swiss withholding tax is just withholding tax, the payout may be fully taxable in your new residence making the amount you pay in CH irrelevant. For info, the size of your fund has an effect of the cheapest canton .
Just a question: Why would a lump sum payout be taxable in a new country of residence? It is money earned in the past in another tax domicile.

Or actually even better and simpler, do you have an example where such a lump sum payout is taxed?
