Auction Description for Holt's: Fine Modern & Antique Guns - March 2017
Contract of Sale - Terms and Conditions:
INFORMATION FOR BUYERS
Invaluable levy a 5% charge of the hammer price of each successful live online bid which will be passed to the buyer. This charge will be collected by Holt's and therefore included within the purchase invoice.

To avoid this extra 5% please leave an absentee bid via Holt's online catalogue, accessed via the Holt's website: www.holtsauctioneers.com

Holt's charges a premium to the buyer on the hammer price of each lot sold at the following rates:
25% up to £5,000
22.5% in excess of the hammer price above £5,000

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.

By registering with Invaluable to bid in a Holt's auction you confirm that you are not a prohibited person as defined by Section 21 of the Firearms Act 1968 (as Amended).
Furthermore, by registering with Invaluable to bid in a Holt's auction you also confirm that any obsolete calibre or antique lots purchased are retained solely as a curiosity or ornament, under the conditions of Section 58 (2) of the 1968 Firearms Act.

Purchases may be collected on the day of the sale or by appointment from our gunroom in Norfolk. Cleared funds need to have been received and the necessary licence produced. It may be possible by prior arrangement (minimum seven days notice) to organise collection from a valuation day or delivery to a Registered Firearms Dealer.

Holt's request that items purchased are collected within one calendar month of the sale. Items not collected after one calendar month following the sale will incur a storage charge of £1 +VAT per day per item unless express arrangements to the contrary have been made beforehand with Holt's.
Buyers of items covered by Section 7 should refer to chapter 9 of the Home Office 'Firearms Law - Guidance to the Police' for eligibility and restrictions.

We are unable to send ammunition and cartridges by postal courier.

Holt's Auctioneers deal in GBP only.

Proof and Condition of Firearms:

Please note that the descriptions of firearms in the catalogues are restricted to external examination and the status of proof. Firearms are not stripped as a matter of course and it is recommended that any purchase is stripped and cleaned and that the firing and safety mechanisms are checked by a qualified gunsmith before use.

Firearms sold with a Certificate of Unprovability or Proof Exemption have been examined by a Proof House but not subsequently proved. These firearms are being sold as items of interest or curiosity and are not to be considered as safe to use.

3.6 applies.
3.2 An agreed Reserve or the agreement that the Lot is to be sold Without Reserve cannot be altered without our written consent.
3.3 If the Property Receipt states a figure for the Reserve, that is the agreed

6. LOSS OR DAMAGE TO PROPERTY
6.1 Unless otherwise agreed in writing, we will assume the risk of loss or
damage to Property received from the Seller where possession of such is actually taken by one of our authorised representatives or one of our employees.

(ii) if the item is unsold, when released by us direct to the seller. Where
released by us via one of our authorised representatives or via a courier
instructed by us (with the charge incurred reimbursed by the seller) the risk
will pass to the seller only when he is in actual possession of the property.
Where, under firearms licensing laws, such release can only be made to a
third party, namely an RFD holder, our assumption of risk will terminate
upon actual possession by that third party. Under these provisions any
claim made by a seller for non-delivery / damage must be made to us within
7 days of the date of delivery or intended delivery. We will not accept liability
for any claim made after this period.

auction value where there are no pre-sale estimates).

amount of our liability shall be as set out in Condition 6.2(i) and (ii), as
applicable, less Seller's Commission and Expenses.

We will not be liable for any loss or damage caused by:- (i) normal wear and tear, gradual deterioration or inherent vice or defect; (ii) proofing and / or repair processes; (iii) war or radioactive contamination.
7 RESIDUAL MATTERS
