Tax and additional costs:
10. Purchase Price, Buyers Premium, Tax, Additional Costs
The hammer price is a net price. A buyer’s premium of 25%, which includes VAT, is levied on the hammer price and not shown as a separate sum (margin tax system). Lots to which this system does not apply and which are
auctioned under the standard VAT system are designated as such in the auction catalogue (‘Regelbesteuert’). Such lots are subject to an 18% buyer’s premium plus 19% VAT, or the reduced 7% VAT in the case of books and original works of fine art. Registered art dealers from EU states are not subject to payment of VAT if a valid VAT Identification number can be presented or communicated in writing. Items for despatch to third countries outside the EU are exempted from the payment of VAT and will be subject to a buyer’s premium of 18% only. Charges for export paperwork and despatch must be borne by the purchaser. Invoices for buyer’s purchases for export to non-EU countries will include VAT, which will be reimbursed after the relevant documents, bearing the official Customs export stamps, are returned to the auction house.
