Fee Example 1:

Ming, who has a studio in Taichung, wishes to lease an artwork that he saw on the Art Bank website (which was originally purchased for $ 600,000 NTD) for half a year.
After evaluating the space and checking the artwork, the leasing fee and service fee are calculated as:

Leasing fee

$600,000(NTD) x0.4%x6(months) =$14,400(NTD)

Relevant artwork leasing costs

Artwork insurance fee is $3,000 NTD (subject to change depending on the total value of the artwork and space conditions; this surcharge is a floating rate)

Transportation (to-and-fro), set-up, and dismantling (2 persons): $7000x2=$14,000NTD
