*** UK BUYERS - PLEASE NOTE: Our buyer's premium is 15% of the hammer price, with no VAT payable on the premium. However, as Guernsey is outside the EU, the item will be liable to import VAT if imported into the UK, at the reduced rate of 5% for antiques. Please factor this in to your bid. The 5% will be liable on the full invoice cost, including the buyer's premium and the 3% fee for live bidding if applicable. The import VAT fee will be added to your auction invoice automatically if you are in the UK. This will allow us to pay the VAT due to UK customs upon import, clearing customs swiftly and with no additional administration fees from UK Customs. *** WE NO LONGER POST ANY ITEMS TO UK BUYERS FROM GUERNSEY *** - this is because Guernsey Post do not have the reduced 5% Import VAT rate in their systems - if we post from here, we must pay Import VAT at the full 20% rate. Therefore, we now send all items purchased by UK buyers to Mail Boxes Etc. in Portsmouth (at our expense), who will then deal with and charge for onward shipping from there. They are a very good Mail Boxes franchise and their charges are reasonable. If you wish to collect the goods yourself (or via an appointed third party) from Guernsey, please let us know within seven days of the sale, so that we can ensure that your purchase is not sent to Mail Boxes and so that the Import VAT can be removed from your invoice before payment.

*** International Buyers: Should you be successful with your bidding we would be pleased to make arrangements for your purchased lot(s) to be shipped to various destinations. For further information please contact James Bridges +44 (0)1481 722700, who will be pleased to assist.

Buyers Premium: 15%

VAT and Export: It is important to note that export restrictions may apply to certain items of a Channel Islands Interest. Please read the notice in the catalogue relating to Export Licences.

The Channel Islands are regarded as a Special Territory of EU and therefore no duty is payable on antiques, pictures and collectibles imported into the UK or Mainland Europe. However the Channel Islands are regarded as non-EU for the purpose of VAT.

Currently EU buyers must pay 5% VAT on the import of antiques and certain works of art.

Import VAT is calculated on the total cost of the invoice plus carriage and must be paid to the Carrier direct (not Martel Maides Auctions) prior to the items being shipped from Guernsey. Items will not be shipped unless this payment has been received by the appointed Carrier.

Methods of Payment: Purchases can only be released when full settlement (inclusive of all charges) of all invoices issued to the buyer is received in cleared funds. Before bidding, you should ensure that you have the necessary funds available and be able to pay according to one of the methods set out below. All cheques should be made payable to Martel Maides Auctions. We accept the following methods of payment: sterling chque drawn on a UK branch of a bank or building society; bankers draft/building society cheque; sterling travellers cheques; cash; bank transfer; debit cards & credit cards. Credit cards payments are subject to a surcharge of 2.5%.
