    Guys, I've found a few things cheaper in Germany even after you include postage, I know plenty of you have bought from German Ebay in the past, my question is what are the rules regards to customs, will I get charged any tax/vat?

    Thanks

    AFAIK anywhere within the EU is subject to the same tax rules i.e. tax should be paid at the point of sale. Interesting question though.

    no vat to pay on used goods bought off e bay, but if you buy direct from a supplier in Germany you will pay the rate of vat in that country but none to import into the UK as they are both in the EU.
