I am a Canadian citizen who is currently studying abroad in the United Kingdom. My laptop broke recently and I need to buy a new one. The specific model I want is not sent to the United Kingdom. However, it is easy to send it to my parents in Canada. They will travel to Ireland in a few weeks, where I will meet them for a short vacation. After that, I will travel back to the UK for a few months to complete my studies. I want to send the laptop to my parents and pick it up from them when we meet in Ireland.
Should my parents pay taxes on the laptop when they arrive in Ireland? If so, approximately, how much would they have to pay? The laptop costs ~ $ 2000 CAD.
