  8. Every item lotted will be subject to a lotting fee of £1. In addition, for every lot sold, sellers shall pay a commission rate of 12% of the hammer price. No VAT is payable.

  9. The seller will be paid by cheque. Cheques will normally be sent out within 2 weeks of the sale. Payment will not be made until the goods have been paid for.

  10. If an item is withdrawn from the auction after the catalogue has been produced, TA reserves the right to charge the normal sale commission on the lower estimated price.

Where the seller fails to provide new instructions or collect the item, TA reserve the right to sell or dispose of such items at the expense of the seller. It is the responsibility of the seller to contact TA with regard to any possible unsold items.

  12. If any lot is an asset of the seller’s business the seller must notify the auctioneers whether he is registered for VAT and, if so, give his VAT registered number or if he intends to operate the VAT Used Goods Scheme.
