Paper LBTT Return Form

Find out when you should contact Revenue Scotland and ask for a paper LBTT return form.

Paper LBTT Return Form

Temporary changes introduced from 1 May 2020:

As Revenue Scotland is temporarily unable to accept incoming post (paper returns and cheques), all LBTT returns (conveyance, lease, or lease review) made from 1 May must be submitted online, using the Scottish Electronic Tax System (SETS).

  • Paper forms, submitted by post can no longer be accepted.
  • In order to submit tax returns to Revenue Scotland online, firms must be registered for the SETS system. 

For taxpayers completing three-year lease review returns:

  • Three-year lease review returns (including assignations and lease terminations) should continue using the current online process
  • Returns for lease transactions with more than one tenant should be completed using the new online return forms and emailed to Revenue Scotland, as below:

PDF icon RS-0004.2 Lease Assignation Return-May20.pdf

PDF icon RS-0004.3 Lease Termination Return-May20.pdf

For more information: see the Leases webpage.

For taxpayers and agents making claims for repayment of Additional Dwelling Supplement (ADS):

  • Agents claiming on behalf of a Taxpayer should either amend the original LBBT return in SETS or else complete the new online repayment claim form and email back to Revenue Scotland
