Invoices will be an invaluable tool for this exercise and crucial to make the right calculations. These must always refer to the replacement value of the movable effects, even if they are used and / or were acquired several years ago. For valuable items such as carpets, paintings, jewelry and antiques, it would be prudent to take pictures and have them evaluated by an expert.
