LAND AND BUILDINGS TRANSACTION TAX
Land and Buildings Transaction Tax (LBTT) replaced UK Stamp Duty Land Tax (SDLT) in Scotland from 1 April 2015. LBTT is due on purchases of land and buildings where the value meets certain thresholds, with relief and exemptions available depending on the type and value of the transaction.
LBTT is a self-assessed tax meaning buyers must complete their own return. This is usually done with the assistance of a property solicitor or conveyancer. Knowing which reliefs and exemptions to apply can save you from overpaying on your investments and increase your return on investment.
