taxation quick question

i am an english guy living in london, and am currently negotiating to join a company which would involve me moving to Zurich. If it goes ahead - as part of the negotiation i may have the ability to decide whether to take a contract in switzerland or a contract in london working in switzerland - I know that for tax reasons i clearly want to be considered Swiss resident rather than on secondment (paying UK taxes). Does it matter which of the above contract types i take given my objective is to be considered a swiss resident for tax purposes ?

Re: taxation quick question

If you are located for less than 183 midnights (IIRC) in the UK then you're not eligible to pay Gordon anything. Being paid in ús might mean you have fun with the exchange rate though.

Swiss taxes are low and <gasp> fair (in my opinion). If you're resident in Zurich then you pay taxes there.

Permit will not be an issue for you.

Re: taxation quick question

no, you pay tax where you're resident. There are threads covering this already.

Hi When do the 183 midnights start and end from?
Do they follow the UK tax year I suppose?
April 7 to April 6 of the following year?
Thanks
