Additional Charge Details

Buyer’s premium:
In addition to the final bid price for each lot, you agree to pay Christie’s the buyer’s premium, together with any applicable value added tax. The buyer’s premium for each lot sold is 25% of the final bid price and the VAT applicable to such amount is 20% of the buyer’s premium.

All lots shall be sold as part of the margin scheme unless stated with the Omega symbol (Ω) or with the words “Omega Lot”. Margin Scheme lots have VAT applicable to the buyer’s premium at the VAT rate of 20%. If the lot is marked with the Omega symbol (Ω) or with the words “Omega Lot” it is on Temporary Admission to the EU and VAT is payable at 20% on the final bid price and 20% on the buyer’s premium. You are responsible for any VAT (including any Import VAT) payable as a result of the sale of the lot. VAT charges and refunds depend on the particular circumstances of the buyer. In all circumstances EU and UK law takes precedence. For the purposes of this online-only auction the VAT amount in the buyer’s premium for EU private buyers cannot be refunded. For buyers outside the EU, VAT may be refunded if certain conditions are met including showing proof of a ‘controlled’ export outside the EU within 30 days of collection (for lots marked with the Omega symbol (Ω) or with the words “Omega Lot” on Temporary Admission) and for all other lots proof of export within 3 months of collection. For buyers outsider the EU where items are shipped outside the EU through Christie’s Art Transport you will not be required to pay the VAT at settlement.
