As2 does not recognise tax in valuating inventory. All unallocated overheads are expensed and Tax is also expensed but not into cost of inventory. Costs of purchase include all import duties which are not recoverable by the company from tax authorities. Hence, try and find out if CIF & FOB are taxable and include them in the cost of inventories.

Sry i did not notice this, the cost of inventories include taxes (not recoverable) as well, so I went through a very good illustrative example which I have included the link to and yes CIF, FOB, BCD, SWS can be included into the cost of inventories after calculating the total applicable duty as per below
my main point was, like before, are they recoverable taxes or not?
