Financial questions from newbie in Switzerland

Hi everyone,

I will relocate to Switzerland and have a few question about finance here.

+ What is the best bank to have an account here which has low fee, good internet banking, can open foreign currency account like Euro account, wide network branch over the country
Is the credit card expensive here ?
+ I have a mortgage back home, can I claim the tax return on the interest amount for this mortgage.
+ What other spending items I may claim the tax return ? what is the tax rate we can claim the tax return.
+ Any website to buy used stuff like advert, donedeal, furniture ..

Thank you.

You will have to put ALL assets,income,bank deposits etc that you have ( both in other countries and in Switzerland ) on the Swiss tax return.
