Switzerland has a dual-taxation rule with the UK. You will end up paying tax once, in the country which has the higher rate, i.e. UK, once you become liable in both.

Speak to an accountant.
Sort of, but not entirely true... depending on where you are taxed at source you may end up initially paying tax in both countries, but the dual tax treaty is supposed to give you a discount off the other tax bill so it comes out at no more than the highest rate.

In practice, there are things allowed against tax in CH which are not in the UK, so you end up paying slightly more.

+1 for speaking to an accountant. In BOTH countries. And guess what... their fees are not tax deductable for a private person...

Good luck

Regards
