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%!
