South Carolina Auctioneers' Commission

Board News

Online Auctions – The South Carolina Auctioneers’ Commission, in August 2014, determined that if you do any facets of auctioning in South Carolina, if you have a store front in South Carolina, if you take consignments in South Carolina, if you write a contract in South Carolina., if you receive funds on behalf of the seller or pay a seller in South Carolina if there is a physical presence of personal property, then you must have a South Carolina Auctioneers’ Commission license. In August 2017, the Commission reaffirmed and strengthened its position to add that you must also have a firm license if your business is anything other than a sole proprietorship as is defined in Section 40-6-20(10).

Firm Licenses – All auction firms, except for sole proprietorships as is defined in Section 4-6-20(10), must be licensed with the South Carolina Auctioneers’ Commission. This includes partnerships, limited liability partnerships, corporations, limited liability companies, or any other business association. Sole member LLCs and/or business entities whose shareholders are all licensed auctioneers are not excluded from firm registration.
