  1. To clarify, for this particular consignment, the total fees to Omega Auctions were 31%+VAT (37.2% inc VAT). This is broken down into 10% + VAT paid by the seller and 21%+VAT paid by the buyer. There are many ways to bid with us, some of which incur no additional charge to the buyer over that which we have just stated here ie 21%+VAT. If bidders choose to use the online platforms to bid, then there is an additional charge, which is for the 3rd party bidding software provider, not for us. 31% is a fair amount for our services we believe and in most cases is far less than the markup a dealer would work on.
  2. Sorry - only just checked in here - the below is from our T&Cs on the website, yes commission rate is negotiable depending on value of the item. The general logic is that when we have to schlep 10,000 rock and pop LPs from someone's attic, photo, store and catalogue, then commission is at full rate. When it's one or two rare 7"s - always lower. Always happy to chat through how we operate - though will find it easier to respond to emails so do please feel free to email on office@omegaauctions.co.uk with any Qs or to discuss consigning or buying. Plotting another Soul sale in next few months. Hope all are healthy and well! Selling Charges Each lot is subject to a £3 lot fee (£2.50+VAT) which is payable for all lots whether sold or unsold. Our standard rate of commission is 21% (17.5%+VAT) on the hammer price of all lots and there is a minimum commission of £12 (£10+VAT) per lot. Reduced commission rates may be agreed in respect of high value articles and large consignments although we do not generally reduce our commission on large vinyl collections due to the vast amount of work involved. Signed items requiring authentication are subject to an authentication charge of £12 (£10+VAT). Buying charges Purchases made in the room are subject to a buyers premium of 25.2.% (21%+VAT) for most sales. This includes telephone bids and absentee bids placed directly with Omega Auctions. For example, if you bid up to £100, you will pay £125.20 in total. The buyers premium may vary for specialist sales such as 'Live from Utrecht', so please check the auction catalogue for details. Winning bids placed online via www.omegaauctions.co.uk are subject to a buyers premium of 28.8% (24%+VAT). For example, if you bid up to £100, you will pay £128.80 in total. Bids placed online via any 3rd party live bidding site (such as the-saleroom.com or liveauctioneers.com) are subject to a buyers premium of 33.6% (28%+VAT). For example, if you bid up to £100, you will pay £133.60 in total.
  3. Hi all, yes, it is indeed the same copy, unplayed since the owner bought from JM's auction. Viewing is Monday morning here and Tuesday before the sale starts. We're happy to answer any questions here, on the phone or via email (all on website contact page) if anyone has any. Thanks!
  4. Just wanted to clarify buyer charges as the above post is a bit misleading. Wessex Auctions - in the room/phone: 17%+VAT (20.4% inclusive of VAT) Online bidding 21.95%+VAT (26.34% inclusive of VAT) Omega Auctions - in the room/phone: 21%+VAT (25.2% inclusive of VAT) Online bidding (on own own site) 24%+VAT (28.8% inclusive of VAT) As most people bid online, this means an additional 2.46% at Omega than at Wessex, so not double as the above post suggests. Buyer charges are added to the hammer price so should be taken into account when bidding. Cheers
