Re: Geneva Aucitons -- All quoted prices include premium

I just got an invoice from the current Phillips auction, and here is how they do the breakdown:


Hammer Price: 8,000 CHF

VAT on Hammer: 640 CHF

Premium: 2,000 CHF

VAT on Premium: 160 CHF

Lot Total: 10,800 CHF

The "SOLD FOR" that is published online, does not include VAT fees, only Hammer price + Premium.


: Seems you are right, apologies, not very clear on their site. Do
: you know if swiss VAT is added to the entire hammer or just the
: premium, the way it reads is that it is on both, thats how I got
: to 33%!
