UK Transfer of Residence (ToR): do we need it when relocating from Switzerland?

Any searches of TOR or Transfer of Residence return absolutely nothing, and yet apparently this is what everybody moving their things to UK from outside the EU needs.
https://www.gov.uk/government/public...r-relief-tor01
This is apparently a new regulation that only came into effect early last year (2017), and before that it was a hassle-free C3 form.
Did anyone have experience with this? Do they really require if for people relocating from Switzerland? And if yes, are there any pointers?

Why do you provide a link to the official page that tells you it is required, has a bunch of help guides on it - and then ask those questions on a forum?

(and specifically states "The ToR1 has replaced the following forms: • Import and export: bringing personal belongings to UK from outside the European Community (C3))

Because I find it odd that nobody ever mentioned it once of the forum. Many other issues (such as visas for example) do not treat Switzerland differently from EU countries, and there is no information about it on the official site. I would like to know if anyone had any problems with transporting their belongings originating in Switzerland through the UK customs.

That's because Switzerland is part of Schengen, a travel visa covers effectively all of Schengen.

Movement of goods very definitely does treat Switzerland differently.
