Identification and Registration
Due to the recent changes in Money Laundering Regulations, auctioneers will now have to carry out checks on bidders, buyers and sellers. The HMRC guidance states “An auctioneer should carry out customer due diligence on a bidder before they receive a paddle and on the buyer before the hammer falls”. Wm Sykes & Son will therefore now be registering prospective bidders prior to the auction where they will need to provide a form of photographic identification (driving licence, passport etc.) and a current utility bill or bank statement etc confirming your address. Registration will take place on the night of the auction between 6.30pm and 7.20pm. Any interested party wishing to bid in the auction must have registered. If you have any problems in doing this please contact our office for further advice.
