Paying Tax

Well after three years in Switzerland I have returned to the uk.
All my taxes were paid for 2016 and after 5 months of being dormant I closed my UBS bank account , giving the odd CHF 76 left in account to charity.
I have now been informed by the large company that does my uk and Swiss tax returns , I might be liable to pay further tax in Switzerland. It's an edge case.
I was made redundant in the uk and it seems the 3 years I did switzerland , makes 3 years of redundancy pay liable to Swiss tax , rather than uk tax.
I was a uk employee when made redundant.
Anyway I'm not disputing the tax, if payable.

My question is ;
How the hell will I pay the Swiss tax man without a Swiss bank account ?
I don't want to take the money as cash , fly to Switzerland and pay via a pink slip at the airport post office. The take flight back to uk.
At the moment I'm under going chemotherapy for cancer , so that would be out of the question anyway due to fatigue.

Thanks for any replies.

PS I bank with HSBC in the uk.
Would they be able to pay the Swiss tax man ?

Re: Paying Tax

Here as an example the information for Steinen. https://www.steinen.ch/verwaltung/ab...gen/steueramt/

They are more than happy to state IBAN and BIC/SWIFT which allows you to make an international transfer from nearly anywhere in the world.

That's good news then.
In the past I used to just scan the pink slip with my iPhone UBS app and the money came out of my account.
So all I need to do is pay money to the IBAN/Swift account for Swiss tax people and I presume quote some kind of reference number so they know its me paying my tax.

Thanks for the reply.

Re: Paying Tax

In general, if the tax man wants money he will find a way to get the money.
The last they want to do is to make it complicated.

Wait for the bill. And if it is really only a pink/orange slip a simple call should be enough to get the IBAN and BIC/SWIFT number.
