Can I get VAT refund when moving from UK to Switzerland?

I've read that non-EC residents who intend to leave EC (European Community) countries for a minimum of 12 months can claim VAT refund.

Sorry if my question is dumb but does Switzerland still count as non-EC country? Will I be able to get VAT refund at the custom for goods that are purchased in the UK within the past three months?

Thanks.

See: http://www.englishforum.ch/daily-lif...ine-store.html

And yes, Switzerland is not and probably never will be a member of the EU.

Any refund must be arranged at the point of purchase be completing a form that is deposited at your port of exit in the UK...
