Buyers premium is 18% + VAT (VAT is chargeable on the premium but not be shown separately on invoice as it is not normally recoverable under the auctioneer’s margin scheme for VAT). This charge applies to anyone bidding direct with us in advance using the Make a Bid form on our website, or if you email us your bids once you are known to us.
Bidding online from your home or office through the-saleroom.com gives you the freedom to bid live during the sale or in advance using that platform, for this service you pay an additional 3%+vat on the hammer price.
Example of how our buyer premium charging works: if you won a lot with a hammer price of, say, £100, the 18% premium would add £18, and VAT on that adds another £3.60- making total payable £121.60.
If you are bidding online through the-saleroom.com, their per-lot online charge adds 3% of the hammer price (£3) and VAT on that would be 60 pence, so overall your invoice from us would be £100 plus £18 plus £3.60 vat (Stag Auctions premium), plus £3 online fee plus 60p vat (the-saleroom.com online bidding fee) on that, so a total of £125.20.
If you need the item to be packed and posted by us there would be the additional appropriate charge for that service which is a VAT-able charge.
