Mandatory Deductions / Tax - Sole Trader

Hello - I am taking up a 12-24 month contract in Zurich. Am currently living in the UK. Think it would be better to be operating as a sole trader / contractor for this income. Am a bit confused about all the deductions though. Can someone please help me with a full list of what to expect? My income will be about 10k CHF per month (12 months)

What I think (please add, or correct!) is:
Pension (Pillar 1 ) - 9.5%
AHV, IV, EO etc - 12%
General Taxes - c. 20%
Health Insurance - guess 3-4k

Does this seem about right, or are there anymore? Also at what point does the tax (federal etc) kick in, is it after all the other deductions are taken or from gross?

Just trying to get a definite list of what deductions / taxes are mandatory to start to work backwards and see what that would leave me after tax. I know expenses will come into it, but just for a starting point!

Thanks
K
