Taxes/Import Duties

Bidders are responsible for any applicable duty and/or taxes on any motor car(s) or any other lot(s) purchased.

Please kindly refer to the detailed notes in the Conditions of Business for all Lots that are:

  • VAT Applicable

  • Temporary Import

Lots Under Temporary Import

Those cars subject to temporary importation restrictions cannot be discharged from RMS’ custody without the completion of customs procedures and until full payment has been received. Customs charges will be levied appropriately depending on each individual scenario and will be payable directly to the relevant authorities, which RMS will provide the details of as and when necessary. Please note there is a compulsory administrative fee to process removing the car from bond.

Payment is due in full on or before 17:00 of the next business day following the auction, and payment is to be made to RM Sotheby’s (‘RMS’). All payments must be in the form of bank transfer unless other arrangements have been approved in advance. International Bidders are advised that bank transfers may take multiple days for funds to transfer, and as such, we ask for banking institutions to confirm the transfer directly with our Administration department once initiated.

Titles/Registration Documents

North America

You will not receive your title for your car at the time of the sale. We manage the title transfer process on your behalf to ensure the car is free of liens and encumbrances. A $75.00 (USD) administration fee or its equivalent in local currency of the auction location ($65.00 (USD) in the State of California) will be assessed per motor car(s) purchased by an individual Buyer, however this fee will not apply to nostalgia lot(s). You can expect your title to be couriered to you within 20 business days post-sale, at which time you can register the car at its final destination. If a Lot(s) is rendered “Title in Transit,” it is unlikely that the Buyers will receive the title in the mail within 20 business days following the auction; however, RM will work to provide the titles to the Buyer as soon as possible.

Europe

You will not receive the title for your car at the time of the sale. Once full payment has been received, pending all title cancellation formalities having been completed, you can expect your title to be couriered to you within 20 business days post-sale, at which time you can register the car at its final destination.
