Good reasonable accountant / tax advisor for Swiss expats in the UK?

Hi,

I will be arriving to Switzerland next month and I was planning to become a non-resident in the UK, i.e. limit my visits to the UK to under 91 days / year.

However the situation is not as simple as just the number of days anymore, see link to the recent Sunday Times article:
http://www.timesonline.co.uk/tol/mon...cle6493134.ece

and I may end up not being classed as non-resident in the UK (as I will be keeping an accommodation in the UK) and if that's the case, as I understand it, I will be paying Swiss taxes plus the difference between Swiss and UK taxes to the UK tax office :-(

Would be interested to hear from other people in similar situations and also if someone could recommend good and reasonable tax advisor / accountant in the UK as to avoid to make any potential mistakes with the UK taxes (i will get a Swiss accountant for the 1st year to help me to sort out Swiss taxes, curtesy of my new employer, so at least that would be taken care off)?

thank you!
