Using the relation between diffeomorphisms in the bulk and Weyl transformations on the boundary, we study the Weyl transformation properties of the bulk metric on-shell and of the boundary action. We obtain a universal formula for one of the classes of trace anomalies in any even dimension in terms of the parameters of the gravity action.
