Droit de Suite - the Artist's Resale Right
Droit de Suite is a royalty payable to a qualifying artist or the artist's heirs each time a work is re-sold during the artist's lifetime and for a period up to 70 years following the artist's death.
Following the introduction of the Artist's Resale Right Regulations 2006 on 14 February, Christie's has decided an amount equal to the resale royalty will be collected from the buyer of a work of art covered by these Regulations. This will then be passed to the relevant collecting agency.
Royalties will be calculated using a sliding scale of percentages of the sale price, net of tax. For auction companies, the sale price is the hammer price (i.e., the price without the premium). However, the total amount of royalty on any one sale or lot shall not exceed €12,500. Resale royalties are not subject to VAT. Resale royalty does not apply when the hammer price is less than €1,000.
