(b) The buyer must arrange for collection of a purchased lot within seven days of the date of the auction. After the auction, we will transfer all lots to our fine art storage facility located near Wimbledon and will so advise all buyers. Purchased lots are at the buyer's risk, including the responsibility for insurance, from (i) the date of collection or (ii) seven days after the auction, whichever is the earlier. Until risk passes, Phillips will compensate the buyer for any loss or damage to a purchased lot up to a maximum of the Purchase Price paid, subject to our usual exclusions for loss or damage to property.
(c) As a courtesy to clients, Phillips will, without charge, wrap purchased lots for hand carry only. We do not provide packing, handling, insurance or shipping services. We will coordinate with shipping agents instructed by the buyer, whether or not recommended by Phillips, in order to facilitate the packing, handling, insurance and shipping of property bought at Phillips. Any such instruction is entirely at the buyer's risk and responsibility, and we will not be liable for acts or omissions of third party packers or shippers.
(d) Phillips will require presentation of government-issued identification prior to release of a lot to the buyer or the buyer's authorized representative.
(b) VAT is payable in accordance with applicable law. All prices, fees, charges and expenses set out in these Conditions of Sale are quoted exclusive of VAT.
(c) If the Artist's Resale Right Regulations 2006 apply to the lot, the buyer agrees to pay to us an amount equal to the resale royalty provided for in those regulations and we undertake to the buyer to pay such amount to the artist's collection agent. In circumstances where (i) we are on notice that the resale royalty is payable or (ii) we have not been able to ascertain the nationality of the artist, we will identify the lot with the symbol ? next to the lot number and will invoice the resale royalty to the buyer. If we subsequently determine that the nationality of the artist does not entitle him/her to the resale royalty on the lot, we will arrange a refund to the buyer of the amount of the royalty paid to us. If, after a sale in which we did not collect the resale royalty on a particular lot, we become aware that information provided to us prior to the auction concerning an artist's nationality was incorrect and the artist is entitled to the resale royalty on the lot, the buyer shall pay the resale royalty to us upon receipt of an invoice.
(d) Unless otherwise agreed, a buyer is required to pay for a purchased lot immediately following the auction regardless of any intention to obtain an export or import license or other permit for such lot. Payments must be made by the invoiced party in pounds sterling either by cash, cheque drawn on a UK bank or wire transfer, as follows:
(i) Phillips will accept payment in cash provided that the total amount paid in cash or cash equivalents does not exceed the local currency equivalent of US$10,000.
(ii) Personal cheques and banker's drafts are accepted if drawn on a UK bank and the buyer provides to us acceptable government-issued identification. Cheques and banker's drafts should be made payable to "Phillips Auctioneers Ltd". If payment is sent by post, please send the cheque or banker's draft to the attention of the Client Accounting Department at 30 Berkeley Square, London, W1J 6EX and ensure that the sale number is written on the cheque. Cheques or banker's drafts drawn by third parties will not be accepted.
(iii) Payment by wire transfer may be sent directly to Phillips. Bank transfer details will be provided on the Invoice for purchased lots.

(e) As a courtesy to clients, Phillips will accept American Express, Visa, MasterCard, UnionPay (for in person transactions only) and UK-issued debit cards to pay for invoices of £50,000 or less. A processing fee will apply.
(f) Title in a purchased lot will not pass until Phillips has received the Purchase Price for that lot in cleared funds. Phillips is not obliged to release a lot to the buyer until title in the lot has passed and appropriate identification has been provided, and any earlier release does not affect the passing of title or the buyer's unconditional obligation to pay the Purchase Price.
