Re: How does it work with taxes already paid in UK?

PS: Form what you said it looks like in the UK the company was taxed, whereas in CH you as a private individual is taxed. Be aware that the Swiss tax law has some tax reliefs in case dividend is paid by company where you have a certain ownership.
As I understand it, this not the case, the company was liquidated and the OP received a distribution which he paid UK taxes on.

OP, as I understand it from your post, the liability rests on the interoperation of how the final distributions from your company are considered - a capital distribution or an income distribution. You probably need to speak to a tax consultant and have him prepare a submission for you. There are many aspects that need to be covered:
- The valuation of the share capital on liquidation: Swiss method should produce a much higher valuation, thus increasing the capital distribution and reducing the income distribution
- The timing of the distributions: before, during or at the end of the liquidation
- The way they were handled by the UK authorities
- etc...
