Am I a tax resident?

I updated my U.K. Bank about my new Swiss address and I received a letter in the post asking me to declare my tax residency- it's a fairly simple form but I just can't work out if I am in fact a tax resident of Switzerland (because I'm a dumb dumb)

I will of course be getting tax advice but this is bugging me

I have a b permit but I do not earn any money. So am I a Swiss tax resident?

If you are living in Switzerland full time, then you are tax resident, Switzerland is where you would pay your taxes if you were earning (and I assume your husband pays taxes here).

You also need to tell the UK government that you've left.

Assuming you have a full time contract of employment, your almost certainly only Swiss tax resident, however if you don't you could be dual tax resident depending on the number of days your in the U.K. at midnight & Other cconnections. Google statutory definition of U.K. Residence & work
It out.
