Carnet value vs. import value
If this was previously discussed, just point me to the right post please:
When one gets a carnet, it represents coverage for a bike of certain value, in most cases that could be the purchase value or some agreed lowered one.
The import in most countries (in my case, Hungary) is based on the new price of the bike, unless it was sold inbetween, in which case whatever it is on the invoice.
So, what happens if (for example) I get a carnet for a new bike of value $10.000 and arrive to the final destination where it needs to be imported. A year later the bike's real value might have dropped to around $2000 by then, so it would be great of the 30something percent of import tax+GST would be calculated based on that.
Any idea how to solve this problem? I tried to email the Customs people but they don't seem to responsive after a few days.
