A slightly complicated tax situation?


I work for a UK employer who wants to send me on secondment to work in the Geneva area. From looking around on this forum and on google as far as I understand if I based there for a full tax year I am exempt from UK income tax - is this indeed correct?

The slightly complicated issue is my employer wants to send me for 6 months, with a strong likelihood of this being a year, but will not commit to it being one year until 3 months after I am there. Would this essentially mean the above exemption, if correct, is not valid because my employer will not state I will be there one year? Would I then be able to claim the tax back if I did stay a year?
