Auction pitfalls

Many of our clients are looking to avoid the high cost of selling items at auction and so find selling to our specialist gallery a more favourable option.

An example of Auction Commission charges in London is 15% plus 20% VAT and sellers also pay an insurance charge of 1.5%. Catalogue illustration charges can range from £50 to £500 and sellers can also be charged if lots do not sell. Additional charges include VAT, shipping, packing, restoration, storage, import and customs duties. They may also have a discretionary reserve which means that you give them permission to sell goods typically 10%-20% below the agreed price.

The buyer of your item has to pay the auction house a buyers premium of about 20%-25% +VAT for the right to buy and then 4% extra if artist resale rights are applicable. This means that sellers may only receive about half of the value that the buyer paid! You also have to hope that the buyer pays their bill on time at auction, which they don't always do!
