Upgrade to SETS Enquiries
Revenue Scotland is undertaking a programme of work to upgrade the online tax portal SETS. Further details are available in our FAQs.
Taxpayers may occasionally write to their MSP/MP to discuss matters regarding LBTT and request that their MSP/MP represent them to investigate specific concerns or issues with Revenue Scotland.
To be able to discuss specific taxpayer information with MSPs/MPs, Revenue Scotland is required to hold a mandate which has been signed by the taxpayer, confirming that the MSP/MP is authorised to speak to Revenue Scotland on their behalf and that Revenue Scotland can disclose information about the taxpayer to the MSP/MP.
A copy of the mandate form is available below:
Any further queries should be emailed to firstname.lastname@example.org
All media enquiries should be emailed to email@example.com.
Phishing and Scam Communications
Phishing or scam communications are emails, letters or telephone calls which appear to have come from a legitimate organisation and prompt you to give your personal information. They often contain generic messages, not personalised to the recipient and state urgent action is required to stop a threat from happening.
Revenue Scotland takes the protection of taxpayer information seriously and complies with The Revenue Scotland and Tax Powers Act 2014.
Genuine correspondence from Revenue Scotland will contain the following:
- A tax case reference number (if applicable);
- State the reason for the correspondence;
- Your identification will be verified in any telephone call from Revenue Scotland to confirm that you are the taxpayer or authorised agent.
If you think you have received a phishing or scam communication claiming to be from Revenue Scotland, please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
You can also report phishing activity to Police Scotland. Further information and contact details can be found on the Police Scotland website.
