Re: Setting up a deposit account

I can't answer the first point, but in our case we made an appointment at UBS and 30 minutes later walked out with the confirmation that the account was opened and funded, which we forwarded along to the landlord. All very straight-forward and everyone seems to know the process.
This all sounds great so far - just one more question;

How do I transfer the full caution (~4000 chf) in to the account quickly? I'm assuming that if I do a wireless transfer from my UK HSBC account, it'll take some days to clear? I'm assuming that cash would be instantaneous, but I'm not exactly keen on taking out 4000 CHF in the days leading up to the 3rd, and then travelling to Zurich with it in my back pocket!

How early in advance should I be looking to open the account in order to allow time for an international transfer prior to the 3/10?
