CGT in UK on Swiss Stock options

I was awarded stock options and preferred shares whilst in CH and paid tax on them when they were awarded (on the face value of the award) as there was, at the time, no CGT on the sale of shares.

I'm now trying to explain this to my accountants that any shares issued in CH, tax paid then, would not be liable for tax in the UK.

Of course, if there has been an increase in value whilst back in the UK, then this portion could be liable.

Of course, I could use my joint CGT annual allowance as an offset, but want to use this for something else.

Does anyone have any have access to any documentation or tax treaties that would prove this to my accountants (of course they can research it but I will pay an extortionate fee...)

Thanks all!
