Paper Returns 

All forms (returns and repayment claims) must now be submitted to Revenue Scotland instead of Registers of Scotland.  

From 19 August 2019 any forms (including Additional Dwelling Supplement, LBTT tax returns, lease and three-year lease review returns) received by Registers of Scotland or old style forms received by Revenue Scotland will be rejected and a new updated form will be required to be submitted.

All paper returns should be accompanied by cheque payment of any tax due.  

Any forms misdirected or received in the old format may lead to delay in registration in the land register and penalties.

The updated paper return forms can be found on the forms page.
