Forthcoming Sales

Martel Maides offer a variety of chattels through our busy auction programme; holding fortnightly Antique and Modern Sales, quarterly Fine Art & Antiques Sales and regular specialist sales throughout the year.

VAT is not charged in Guernsey and our buyer's premium is a very competitive 15% on Fine Art Catalogue sales and 10% on our regular Antique & Modern sales. Items exported to the UK are subject to VAT upon import - there is a reduced rate of 5% for items over 100 years of age. All other items are subject to VAT at the prevailing rate. Please note that import VAT is levied on the invoice total including buyer's premium and shipping costs. We are happy to assist with advice on import/export matters and can recommend local carriers who will be able to handle the relevant paperwork when items purchased from our auctions pass through UK customs.
