German term or phrase: respektive
Bei Sachschäden sind die Reparaturkosten inkl. eines allfälligen Minderwertes respektive der Zeitwert geschuldet.

Swiss German. Could this mean "in respect to" here, instead of the usual "or"?

Explanation:
'der Zeitwert' is in the nominative case. Therefore, it means that either 'die Reparaturkosten inkl. eines allfälligen Minderwertes' ***or*** 'der Zeitwert' are 'geschuldet'
