If you are bidding with us for the first time, please bid by two of these methods with the same bids (e.g. by post and by phone, or by telephone and by e-mail), or bid in good enough time for us to get back in touch with you with any queries.

THE END OF THE SALE
Robert Murray 2011

                                                       
 

A Buyers Premium of 10% (vat-inclusive) will be added to all sale prices.

0845 0500 886   Use this number to make bids or to check on prices after the auction or any time you want to speak to us from anywhere in the UK for the cost of a local rate phone call.

 

 

Friday 18 March; Please note that our shop will be closed all day on the Friday after this auction.

 

uro Currency; We are happy to accept Euro cash payments in our shop. We normally allow the market rate rounded down to the next whole penny. For example, at the time of writing, the market rate is 0.8492, so we are allowing 84p per Euro (which is probably better than your bank will give you). You can also pay for lots in this auction by Euro banknotes (postal customers please confirm before sending). We also accept payments in our shop in Euros, and we buy the old legacy currencies, as well as other coins and notes.

We are now stocking the magazine Stamp and Coin Mart in our shop. This is a monthly publication, priced at 3.20, and is a good general interesting read. If we have copies available well bring them along to the auctions.

General, 14 March 2011                           Page 16                                   Estimate.
                               

VAT on Postal Services. As from 31 January VAT has been applicable to some Royal Mail services. In general terms, standard services are still exempt (first and second class post, basic Special Delivery, standard parcels, standard foreign services) but many enhanced services are now liable to the tax at 20%. Where the tax is charged, it is not just on the extra amount for the enhanced service but on the total amount.

For example, a standard UK parcel up to 4kg was 7.06, and compensation up to 100 cost 1 extra, making 8.06. Now the standard parcel is still 7.06, plus 1 insurance, plus 20% vat on the total price, making 9.67. So the 1 insurance is in effect costing 2.61.

This will have the following possible effect on our customers receiving goods from us;

            {a} Many packages will cost exactly the same as before.

            {b} Some will cost a full 20% more than previously.

            {c} Where it makes sense and is easy to apply, we will sometimes choose to send packages by the standard vat-free service, but cover it through our own insurance policy. This will appear on invoices simply as insurance, and will only be done where it gives the customer a worthwhile saving.

An then of course, theres going to be general increases in postal rates from 6 April

Most auctions include a few lots which, due to their large size or weight compared to value, will not be taken to the auction venue. They must therefore be viewed at our shop during the previous week, and successful purchasers will be responsible for their collection from us.

            Bids by post. Please use the Bid Form supplied, and send first class.

            Fax bids; no fax facility is available.
            E-mail bids should be sent to us at auction@stamp-shop.com at any time from the moment you receive this catalogue until

CREDIT CARDS

We are happy to accept MasterCard and Visa credit card payments, as well as payments by Maestro and Delta. This facility can be used by room purchasers (who pay their accounts at the auction), by other local customers (who pay their bill in our shop), and by postal buyers.
In order to deal with postal clients, our bid forms have been designed to make space for credit card instructions.
If you want your purchases charged in this way, please complete the appropriate section.
Do not complete these details unless you want to pay by credit card, and to have the lots posted.

 (Photocopies are available, at a charge of 15p per copy (colour copies A4 pages; 1st copy 50p, 30p per page thereafter), plus postage.)
