UK to tax Swiss Accounts

So the UK & CH have agreed this deal to tax the accounts of UK residents. I am resident here in Switzerland on an L permit. My bank account is under a Swiss address. Do I need to do anything to make sure I don't get taxed by the UK? How do HMRC know where you are resident?

Thanks

Re: UK to tax Swiss Accounts

You didn't say, but I have to assume you're from the UK.

They'll know you're not resident when you filled in your P85 form and sent it to HMRC saying you have permanent employment abroad. However, if you did have permanent employment here in Switzerland you'd have a B permit.

So - more details needed.
