Cashing in Swiss pension and returning to the UK

Hi all,
Sorry for the amount of posts today. I've read a couple of threads about cashing in pensions but can't find one for returning to the UK. I spoke to my pension fund and they said I have to apply to the zentralstelle who will then contact the British government to see if it's OK to pay my pension contributions to me in cash.

Has anyone done this? It looks like a long process which I'd rather not begin if it's going to end in 40% tax to Mr Cameron. I want to invest the cash amount in property. It's about 16k francs according to the statement I've just received.

Any help greatly appreciated.
