Buy in Italy

Buyer fees

When a vehicle is sold in auction, buyer has to pay a Fee according to the type of vehicle and to the type of sale.

There are two main Buyer Fees scales:

In addition to Buyer Fees the following fares apply:

  • Export tax: 180€
  • purchase through Live Online: 35€

Aforementioned fees and fares apply singularly to each vehicle purchased.

In case of Special Sales, where different economic conditions apply, these are declared within the sale itself.

All foreign buyers, regardless whether they are located within or outside the EU, have to pay a VAT deposit (22% of the invoice value) unless transport is organised by BCA. The deposit will be refunded upon receipt of legitimate proof of the arrival of the vehicle at final destination (CMR for EU buyers, MRN for non EU buyers).
