tax / social security / pension obligations


just trying to get a clear outline of what my financial obligations are (will be) once i start working in switzerland, and on whether or not it's possible to offset/reclaim any of these later. have read posts in this forum, as well as the excellent http://www.rebgasse.com/reblog/?page_id=59, but missing some jigsaw pieces and not sure of current position re: bilateral agreements. would be very grateful if someone could run a quick sanity check on the following and let me know what's wrong, missing etc

This is what i *think* I have to pay, but i'm not clear on the how/when/if of claiming/reclaiming/offsetting:

PENSION: 1st pillar [mandatory]
AHV - Old Age and Survivorsí Insurance
IV - Disability Insurance
EO - Compulsory Income Regulations (?)
ALV - Unemployment Insurance
KV - Private Health Insurance, possible to offset against gym subs

PENSION: 2nd pillar [mandatory]
UVG - Accident Insurance
BVG - Occupational Pension

INCOME TAX: at source, can be offset against (eg) UK tax obligations
CHURCH TAX: at source, can be reclaimed

incidentally, I'm EU, L permit, and will be employed in Zurich as an individual (via an umbrella), and i expect to be paying full tax and NI in the UK for the duration of my time in switzerland...
