25% up to £5,000
22.5% from £5,001 to £30,000
20% from £30,001 to £50,000
15% £50,001 +
VAT is payable on the premium at the applicable rate. VAT is also applicable to the hammer price when stated at the foot of the lot description as follows:

Items marked † are subject to 20% VAT on the hammer price under the prevailing UK VAT rule for newly manufactured goods.
Items marked * are subject to 5% VAT on the hammer price as an antique import.
Items marked ** are subject to 20% VAT on the hammer price as a modern import.
Where imported goods are purchased the following rules apply:
For UK VAT registered buyers buying in the course of their business - upon production of the buyer's VAT registration number, the VAT on the hammer price is payable to Holt's but HMRC will allow its refund by way of a VAT input tax deduction. A C79 Notice will be issued by HMRC to the buyer following purchase.

For other EU VAT registered buyers buying in the course of their business - upon production of the buyer's VAT registration number, the VAT on the hammer price is not payable to Holt's. Buyers must declare the purchase in their own member state and follow the appropriate procedure.

Where goods are exported to outside of the EU, refund of the VAT on the hammer price and the buyer's premium will be made by Holt's providing the UK Customs declaration has been completed and proof of export given to Holt's. Goods should be exported within 30 days of the date of payment.

Where non imported goods are exported to outside of the EU, Holt's will refund the VAT on the buyer's premium providing the UK Customs declaration has been completed and proof of export given to Holt's. Goods should be exported within 3 months of the date of payment.

With the exception of exported goods, VAT included in the buyer's premium is not recoverable.

For further assistance with any of the above please contact Holt's Accounts Department.
Purchasers must hold a valid licence to possess the item they are bidding on unless prior arrangements have been made with Holt's to store the item on their behalf whilst variations are sought. This may incur a nominal storage charge. Section 5 items may only be bid on by current Section 5 licence holders without exception. A valid Section 5
authority must be produced in order to view prohibited weapons. Overseas buyers should be aware that items classified as Section 5 prohibited weapons under UK law will incur additional shipping charges regardless of their classification outside the UK.

Buyers should make arrangements with Mrs Laura Arnold in advance of the sale date should they wish to pay by cheque. All major debit and credit cards accepted. There is a 3% fee for all credit cards, 4% for American Express.

Purchasers are responsible for shipping charges and licensable items can only be sent to a registered RFD.
