The Auktion & Markt AG is an auction house founded in 1988 and operates various auction platforms with physical and digital auctions. Originally founded in Wiesbaden, the company started with the auction of vehicles on site, to end customers as well as dealers. After several years of this form of business, Auktion & Markt decided to exclude end customers from the business and focus on professional trading of used cars. In 2003, Auktion & Markt, founded the digital car exchange for dealers, autobid.de. This auction platform is used solely for online auctions in the B2B sector. One year later, in 2004, the company was transformed into a stock corporation. Over the following years, Auktion & Markt expanded the business across Europe, with representatives in Luxembourg, Romania, Poland and Latvia.

In 2013, Auktion & Markt added another business area, the auction platform for real estate, propertybid.de. The auctions in this area of Auction & Market focus on commercial real estate.

With the establishment of the new division Classicbid in 2014, Auction & Market expanded the offer for the car trade. Classicbid offers exclusively the trade and auctions of classic vehicles. 

Auction & Markt now markets mainly lease returns, trade-ins, accident vehicles as well as commercial vehicles through Autobid.

Margin Scheme Taxation
Margin scheme taxation is a tax procedure that plays a significant role in the trade of used motor vehicles. It allows dealers to pay value-added tax (VAT) only on the difference between the purchase and sale price of the vehicle, rather than on the entire sale price. This approach is particularly attractive to used car dealers, as it can potentially reduce their tax burden. At the same time, certain conditions must be met to apply this procedure. Knowledge of the calculation method, the legal conditions, and the advantages and disadvantages of margin scheme taxation is essential for dealers to remain competitive and for private individuals to make well-informed decisions when purchasing a vehicle.
Car auctions in Europe
The European Economic Union offers many opportunities for car trade in general and especially for online car auctions. Within the customs union, all European citizens can freely buy and sell cars.
