Re: UK tax on Swiss pension withdrawal

Switzerland: double taxation agreement, Article 18: Pensions

(1) Subject to the provisions of paragraph (2) of Article 19, pensions and other similar remuneration paid to an individual who is a resident of a Contracting State, shall be taxable only in that State.
(2) Notwithstanding the provisions of paragraph (1), a lump sum payment derived from a pension scheme established in a Contracting State and beneficially owned by a resident of the other Contracting State shall be taxable only in the first-mentioned State.

Pay the Swiss Tax and leave it at that.

PS: if you move your money to Liberty just to get a lower tax rate on the withdrawal keep in mind they will charge you a withdrawal fee which may end up offsetting the saving. It all depends on how much money you have in your pot.
