About Us

Revenue Scotland is the tax authority with responsibility for the collection and management of Scotland’s devolved taxes.

Revenue Scotland was established as a Non-Ministerial Department on 1 January 2015 and is the tax authority responsible for the administration and collection of Scotland’s devolved taxes - Land and Buildings Transaction Tax (LBTT) and Scottish Landfill Tax (SLfT). These taxes came into effect on 1 April 2015, replacing their UK equivalents (Stamp Duty Land Tax and UK Landfill Tax respectively). The organisation has a Board with seven members, a Chief Executive and a senior leadership team.
