The scheme applies to:
- visual artists, who will receive a mandatory five per cent of the resale price of their work, when it sells for $1000 or more.
- works by living artists and for a period of 70 years after an artist’s death
- original works of graphic or plastic art, such as a painting, a collage, a drawing, a print, a sculpture, a ceramic, an item of glassware or a photograph
- resales where the seller acquires a work after the resale royalty legislation takes effect.
