Swiss RSU Withholding Tax - French Residents

Hi all,

I have recently been granted some RSU (Restricted Share / Stock Units) post my retirement from Geneva Switzerland where I worked as a France based frontalier.

I am asked to pay Swiss Withholding tax on the value of the shares plus pension, chomage etc. with the withholding tax amount being 31.5 %. I understand this is a legal requirement to pay this 'flat tax'. As a pensioner in France my tax rate is usually much lower as my income is substantially less than when I was employed.

I'd be greatful if anyone has knowledge of a way in which the tax burden could be reduced by way of reclaim from Switzerland or submission of a swiss tax return. I don't have any other taxable income in Switzerland.
