Change to invoicing/bidding procedure for wines offered in bond (‡ symbol) for London sales from the 1st September 2012:
Wines offered in bond may be taken in bond or duty paid.
If you choose to take these lots in bond the hammer price will be payable in full. We will no longer deduct excise duty from the hammer price.
If you choose to take these lots duty paid, excise duty at the current rate and clearance VAT on the hammer price will be added to your invoice.
These charges cannot be cancelled or refunded by Christie’s.
Please see the additional conditions of sale for wine set out in the sale catalogue for further details.
