The German VAT for art is enhanced from 7 % to 19% with January 1st. 2104


For the works of emerging artists the engagement by buyers should be a medium to longtime decision, so the increase of prices by VAT should be neglected.


But do not forget: Buy contemporary art just in time with the eyes and not with the ears to be a partial of the culture our time. The earnings will be quality, emotional experience and new perceptions aboot life.


We like to serve with detailed informations about the "The Strategy of Collecting contemporary art" - for Individuals and companies.
