I'm here partly because my (at the time) UK employer was bought out by a huge US firm, who then decided to move the headquarters for Europe from the UK to Vaud.
An obvious sham, about 15 people here, about 300 in the UK.

Not a sham at all, you say yourself that 15 people work in the headquarters, that's about the same as at Berkshire Hathaway.

You can keep exisiting UK bank accounts when you move abroad- but you must register your new address abroad, fill the relevant forms with tin (or equivalent in CH as there is no TIN) - but you are NOT allowed to use the address of a relative in UK as if it is your own- even if you are the owner of said property (as in our case).
The tin no in CH is your AVS no just as in the UK it's your national insurance no.
You can certainly use a UK mailing address, it has nothing to do with residential or tax status.

I'd contest that to the man in the street, it looks like a sham, offshoring the profits.
Yes, it is what it is and legal, but doesn't sit right.

If countries were less greedy this tax shopping would not occur, competition is always good it gives more choice & lower prices.
