Calculating resale royalties

Resale royalties are worked out from the sale price excluding tax (hammer price for auction sales). 

They are calculated for each work using a sliding scale per portion of the sale price (4% to 0.25%), capped at 12,500 euros: 

  • 4% up to 50,000 euros;
  • 3% for the portion between 50,000.01 euros and 200,000 euros;
  • 1% for the portion between 200,000.01 euros and 350,000 euros;
  • 0.5% for the portion between 350,000.01 euros and 500,000 euros;
  • 0.25% for the portion above 500,000.01 euros
