Re: tax / social security / pension obligations

i'm expecting to be working in switzerland (for a swiss company, on a contract basis) for 6-12 months, and my understanding is that that i will be expected to pay full income tax in both switzerland and the UK for the duration of this time, but that i can offset the swiss tax against my UK tax. for example, if my swiss income tax bill was 10000 and my UK income tax bill was 15000, i would only owe UK HMRC the difference of 5000.
The only bit I can help with... yes, you'll pay HMRC the difference.
A friend went back to the UK after a contract of 9 months or so and was hit by this.
