Notifying Swiss Tax of Capital Gains when leaving Switzerland


I understand there are no capital gains taxes (stocks) in Switzerland. However do I need to let the Swiss tax authorities know what my capital gains on stocks were when I file my last year of taxes of living in Switzerland? I lived in Switzerland for 2.5 years.

I have recently left Switzerland, and I want to ensure that I do not pay any taxes on my capital gains (up to my date of departing Switzerland) in my new country (UK), or in my home country when I return home (Canada). For instance, when I left Canada I had to file a tax form that essentially 'realized' all my capital gains on paper on my date of departure. I paid those and was considered up to date on my taxes to be considered a non-resident. I essentially am wondering if I need to file a proper similar form to close off all my loose ends before leaving Switzerland, so I am not in fear of having to pay them in another country later.

Thank you!
