Christie's charges a Buyer's premium calculated at 23.205% of the hammer price for each lot with a value up to €110,000. If the hammer price of a lot exceeds €110,000 then the premium for the lot is calculated at 23.205% of the first €110,000 plus 11.9% of any amount in excess of €110,000. Buyer's Premium is calculated on this basis for each lot individually.
Please note that this lot will be sold outside the margin scheme. 19 VAT applies to both the hammer price and the buyer's premium. The amount payable including VAT is calculated for each lot as 142.205 of the hammer price up to a value of EUR 110.000, plus 130.9 of any amount in excess of EUR 110.000.
Please note too that the medium should read oil on paper laid down on canvas instead of oil on canvas as stated in the printed catalogue.
