Estimated prices, starting price, minimum sale price, limit, hammer price

In object descriptions, an upper and lower estimated price is stated in euros. The highest bid is expected within this range. The starting price is also stated online. As a rule, the starting price is the lower estimated price, but it

can be set higher or lower. The auctioneer increases the price by steps of approx. 10%, although it is possible to deviate from this. The highest bid wins, provided that the minimum selling price has been reached. If the seller decides not to sell the object below a fixed price, this is called the minimum sale price or limit. If this is not reached, the sale is considered conditional. Highest bidders are obliged to pay the purchase price within 7 days after invoicing.

Purchase price

The purchase price consists of the highest bid plus the buyer's premium, sales tax and, if applicable, the fee of artists resale rights. The buyer's premium amounts to 28% in case of differential taxation. The sales tax is included in the differential taxation.

In the case of normal taxation (marked ° ), a premium of 24% is added to the highest bid. For paintings, watercolors, drawings and sculptures, the statutory sales tax of 13% is added to the sum of the highest bid and the buyer's premium, for all other objects 20%.

Resale Right

Items marked * are subject to the resale right. This will be charged in the form of a surcharge on the highest bid. It only applies to highest bids over € 2,499.99 and is staggered: for the first € 50,000 4% will be charged. Thereafter, for each additional €150,000, 3% and 1% respectively, and for €500,000 and above, 0.25%. The maximum resale right charge is 12,500 €.
