Asking price – listed in the catalogue, it is the amount from which an auction starts. Bidding may end at an amount equal to the asking price or higher.

Estimate – given in the catalogue, it is the estimated value of an object and serves as an indication for a buyer interested in an object. Bidding completed within the estimation range or above its upper limit is a final transaction. Estimates do not include auction fees or additional fees.

Guarantee price – the lowest price an item can be sold for without the consent of the committer. It is within the range between the starting price and the lower limit of the estimation. The amount of the guarantee price is confidential. If a guarantee price is not reached during the auction, a conditional contract is concluded, which is announced by the auctioneer after a hammer strike. Not all objects must have a guarantee price.

Conditional transaction- is concluded when an object at auction has not reached the guarantee price. Conditional transaction is treated as a binding offer to purchase an object at the auctioned price. The 101 Project Contemporary Art Gallery and Auction House is obliged to negotiate with the committee in order to obtain acceptance of the auctioned price. The sales contract will take effect if 101 Project Contemporary Art Gallery and Auction House will succeed in negotiating with the committer the auctioned price or the buyer raises its offer to the guarantee price level. If the negotiations with the committer yield no positive results within 5 days, the item is considered unsold. During this period 101 Project Contemporary Art Gallery and Auction House reserves the right to accept, by way of a post-auction sale, offers equal to the same price as the guarantee price. If the 101 Project Contemporary Art Gallery and Auction House receives such an offer, it must inform the customer who has auctioned the item conditionally. If the customer raises his offer to the guarantee price, he has precedence in the purchase.

The auction fee- the auction fee is added to the bid amount. The fee is calculated degressively depending on the bid amount: up to 100,000 zł (included) – 18% fee, over 100,000 zł – 15% fee. The auction fee is also obligatory in the case of post-auction sale. The bid amount along with the auction fee include VAT. 101 Project Gallery issues a VAT margin invoice for the purchased object if the client requests such a document.
