UK Property asset - value for Swiss Tax Return

We are Swiss residents with a house in UK. On the tax return we have to list its value as an asset. Is it the current market value or the re-build cost we use?
The reason we ask is that our apartment in Switzerland is listed by the Swiss Tax authority at about half the amount we paid for it!

Market value less 30% would be fine, which is about the fire sale value on 31 December. Valuations are always opinion rather than fact. Remember to show any mortgage you have which could possible give a negative value overall.

Re: UK Property asset - value for Swiss Tax Return

I was never asked for any proof of the valuation I gave for my UK house.

Also.. remember.. the value goes on the asset part of the declaration.. any rent goes on your income.. but any costs..(all mortgage payments.. upkeep etc)...are tax deductible.

CH tax values are about 33% of true value.

Re: UK Property asset - value for Swiss Tax Return

Many thanks for the info everyone. We had initially priced our house at the UK market value.

Reducing it by even a small amount moves us to a lower category for the Wealth Tax as we were just over a boundary!

Cheers!
