    I am currently in Germany but looking to sell my American spec. 15" pb g4 on ebay.co.uk, would the person I ship to have to pay any VAT taxes if the parcel originates in Germany?

    No. There should be no taxes on shipping an item within the EU. Of course you may be liable for taxes for the original "import" into Germany...

    Heh, I'm not German, I'm an American and I bought this like 2 years ago in the states and have used it the past 2 years in Germany, so it's not like I imported just for the sake of selling it.
