Just wondering about calculating the customs value for something purchased online outside the EU. I wanted to buy something online from the US and import it. The item is on sale for 70% off, like outlet price kind of thing. I buy it online for the 70% off price, plus shipping. When I import it into Ireland will they calculate customs based on what I paid or based on what the original price was before the sale? I am not trying to get around paying tax, I'm more than happy to import and pay it as it will still be a way better deal than here but I'm pretty sure the invoice that comes with it will say something like $200 minus 70% total $60 etc plus say $20 shipping.
