Switching residency from GB to CH tax question?

Hi, I am thinking of renting out my home in the UK full time and relocating to my holiday home in Switzerland. I am a duel national of both countries. With a few small alterations the holiday home can become a permanent home. However it is not as simple as that!
I earn my salary exclusively in the UK and will have no other income,
I will commute to work in the UK as I work from London for an international airline.
I imagine I will be around 100 days in the UK and around 150 in Switzerland about 90 abroad outside of both countries.
At the moment the only tax I pay in Switzerland is a small amount on holiday rentals (which will stop if I live there) and my wealth.
I pay PAYE in the UK as I am currently living there and I declare my Swiss rental.
However, if I move to the holiday home, will I pay my tax in the UK or Switzerland? Or Both? I am a basic rate payer in the U.K. But I understand from the Gemeinde where I am planning to move to that the tax on my UK income will be around 12%. So would I pay the full U.K. Rate and ask for double taxation relief in Switzerland or the other way around?
Also as I would not be in Switzerland the whole year would that also make a difference. I have emailed the Gemeindesteuern Office but they didn't seem to understand what I was asking.
I am hoping someone on here can point me in the right direction.
Many Thanks,
Kafi

I Am Not An International Tax Lawyer.

From the information you've supplied, it seems likely you'll remain tax resident in the UK, so you'll be liable for tax in the UK just as you are now. You will need to file tax return in both countries. Any tax due in CH will be offset by tax you've paid to the UK.

Re: Switching residency from GB to CH tax question?

Hi Notallthere! Thanks for your input, when you say the tax I've paid to the uk will be offset, you mean deducted? As the tax in the U.K. Is 20% basic, and Canton Wallis is 12%, in theory I should be exempt from tax on my income? As it's already been paid to the uk? Is that correct?
