Offshore Pension Funds included in Wealth Tax for Swiss Tax Purposes?

Hi All,

Last year I moved UK pensions into QROPS funds in Guernsey and I was told that the Pension funds do not need to be included on the Easy Tax return. Told yesterday they do need to be (despite the fact I never included the UK company pension funds on previous returns) but not sure whereabouts on the wealth/assets part of Easy Tax they need to be included. I had completed the whole form and was ready to put in envelope and take to Gemeinde too

Any Help out there?

Looking at the forms I think they go in either Obligation or Anlagefonds but many of the fields seem to be unrelated to the type of funds that I have.

Of course, the forms have to be handed in tomorrow too....

Will it be a big deal if I leave it this year and put them in next year when I understand more about this.

Cheers

My accountant told me that pension funds I have in the UK do not need to be declared in Switzerland.
