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.
