ADS Repayment Claims

Temporary changes to be introduced from 1 May:

As Revenue Scotland is temporarily unable to accept paper claim forms, the way in which claims for repayment of ADS can be submitted has changed.
All claims for repayment of ADS must now be made online using SETS, or by using the new online repayment claim form, as below.

How to claim repayment of ADS

The way in which a claim for repayment of ADS is made depends on both:

  • who is making the claim (Agent or Taxpayer), and
  • when the claim is actually being made

Repayment claims by an Agent

Claims for repayment of ADS made by Agents depends both on the timing of the claim and whether the agent making the claim acted in the submission of the original LBTT return.

If you were the agent that submitted the original return and the claim is being made within 12 months of the filing date, you should amend the original return using the SETS system.

In all other circumstances, agents must complete the new online repayment claim form. See more information, below.

Repayment claims by Taxpayer

Claims for repayment of ADS can be made directly by Taxpayers using the new online repayment claim form.  See more information below.

All claims for repayment of ADS made by Taxpayers must be made using the new online repayment claim form and emailed to Paper claims, submitted by post, can no longer be accepted.

Announcement from Scottish Government

Scottish Ministers announced on 28 April 2020 that in the next Bill being brought forward in response to the COVID-19 pandemic, one of the temporary measures will be to extend the time period during which a previous main residence must be sold in order for taxpayers to claim a repayment from Revenue Scotland.  We continue to engage with Scottish Government officials and will share further details of the changes as soon as they become available.
