In order to comply with EU legislation, we are legally required to obtain and check identity documents for all of our customers who purchase a piece of art worth €10,000 or more from us, or who spend more than €10,000 with us in a single transaction.
In practical terms this means that we have to ask you for a copy of a valid photo identity document, such as a passport, driving license or national ID card so that we have proof of your full name, date of birth, nationality and address on record.
If you’re purchasing on behalf of someone else, please let us know as we are still responsible for verifying their identity.
If you're purchasing on behalf of a business, we will require company details including evidence of incorporation, directors and the ultimate beneficial owners.
Payments will have to be made from a bank account held in the name of the person or entity named on our invoice. In the event that you wish for a third party to pay for a purchase on your behalf, please notify us in advance as this may require further checks.
If you have any questions or concerns please don’t hesitate in contacting us to discuss them.
