Art Galleries &

Antique Dealers

We provide intelligent, well thought out and practical advice on the financial aspects of art transactions.

  • Accounting and tax compliance support for art-related businesses ranging from full day-to-day involvement in management accounting, payroll and VAT services through to the annual audit and corporate tax return processes.
     

  • Tax advice on international cross-border aspects of art related transactions including, amongst other things, complex VAT analysis, personal tax considerations for non-domiciled individuals and transfer pricing issues for international gallery groups.
     

  • VAT advice relating to the purchase/ sale of works of art both within the EU and outside the EU.
     

  • IT support for the creation and maintenance of complex art (and other asset) databases for businesses.
