Temporary changes to be introduced from 1 May:
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.
ADS Repayment claims
Taxpayer claims for repayment of ADS can now be made using the new online claims process.
New functionality has been introduced to the SETS system that allows Taxpayers to claim repayment of ADS now entirely online.
For more information: see LBTT How To guidance, or contact Revenue Scotland by email: firstname.lastname@example.org.
