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:
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
RS-0005 ADS Repayment Claim Form.pdf
- Taxpayers making repayment claims themselves should use the new online process
For more information: see the How to claim a repayment of ADS webpage.
