Droit de Suite
Certain works of art within our sales may be subject to the Droit de Suite or Artist’s Resale Right, which took effect in the United Kingdom on 14th February 2006. Under this legislation, we are required to collect a royalty payment for all qualifying works of art, where the artist is still living. This royalty will be charged to the buyer on the hammer price and in addition to the buyers premium. It will not apply to works where the hammer price is less than €1,000 (euros). The charge for works of art sold at and above €1,000 (euros) and below €50,000 (euros) is 4%. For items selling above €50,000 (euros), charges are calculated on a sliding scale. All royalty charges are paid to the Design and Artists Copyright Society (‘DACS’) and no handling costs or additional fees are retained by the auctioneers. Resale royalties are not subject to VAT.


Please note that the royalty payment is calculated on the rate of exchange at the European Central Bank on the date of the sale.    More information on Droit de Suite is available at www.dacs.org.uk
