4. If the seller, granting to the buyer payment deferral of goods, determines conditions of implementation of payment without allocation of interest payments from the price which is actually paid or subject to payment and establishes in the external economic agreement fixed prices on goods depending on terms of their payment, such financing of purchase of the imported (estimated) goods influences the size of customs value of these goods. In this case as basis for determination of customs value of the imported (estimated) goods the price which is actually paid by the buyer proceeding from the specific term of implementation of payment shall be used (see example 3).

3) the imported (estimated) goods are really sold at the price declared as the price which is actually paid or subject to payment, that is the seller when pricing goods does not consider interest payments, and even in case of lack of the financial relations with the buyer goods would be sold at the same price;

4) the interest rate established in the financial agreement or in the external economic agreement does not exceed the level characteristic of the similar financial relations in the same country and during the corresponding period of time in which the financial agreement or the external economic agreement respectively were signed.
