Buying Silver for clients
Silver bars are available in approx 1,000 oz (London Good delivery), 100 oz (Royal Canadian Mint), 15 and 5 kilo bars from Umicore. Market prices increase with lower bar weights.
CLIENT PRICING SILVER: for physical Silver including transport and insurance:
Paper spot price plus 1.3% – 3.5% (this depends on bar type and total weight of purchase order).
This margin represents the cost of the refinery, funding stock in bonded warehouse, vault release, transport and insurance from a foreign country. The minimum wholesale trading size for Silver is currently 5,000 oz.
GoldSwitzerland trades with the client at cost and will save the client a substantial trading margin in case of retirement of (part of) the account within 5 – 7 years.
Note: transactions can be concluded in USD, CHF, EUR, GBP, CAD or AUD.
There is NO VAT payable on Silver as long as it is stored in the duty free zone at Zurich airport. Only when investors import the silver from the vaults into a European country, VAT is payable at the VAT rate of that country.
