The tax rate of raw materials is mostly tax-free and tax reduced. Irish import and export duties are currently paid in Irish currency. The conversion exchange rate of foreign amounts is calculated based on the take out exchange rate when the axle weight frequency of goods entering the supplier country is significantly increased compared with the previous domestic consumption. Ireland implements a 21% value-added tax on many projects. Clothing, leather clothing, textile, yarn and raw materials used in clothing manufacturing are subject to a tax of 10% and 40% at this time (this value is meaningless).
