BVG for Self employed/GmbH

Apologies if this has already been done, I can't find the thread that covers it.

The basic concept of BVG is clear to me. A percentage, based on a rolling scale by age, of your gross salary, which can consist of a compulsory, and voluntary element, and on the circa 80K threshold. I also understand that the setting up of the associated Freizugikeitskonto is free.
However, I did read somewhere that there are certain insurance and possibly other costs, specifically BVG related, rather than those to cover me working on an employers site, that I have to pay.

If I work through someones GmbH as an umbrella company, and get paid a salary of say 126K (the Arbeitslossenkasse , but exceeding the compulsory BVG threshold) what costs would I expect to pay and for what specifically? NB. All the costs would come out of my total gross income, the GmbH, I just pay them a fee for providing the service.

Can someone point me to the appropriate thread?
