Land and Buildings Transaction Tax (LBTT), Scotland

Buying a home in Scotland

As from April 2021 the Land and Buildings Transaction Tax rates are:

  • £0 to £145,000 - 0%
  • £145,001 to £250,000 - 2%
  • £250,001 to £325,000 - 5%
  • £325,001 to £750,000 - 10%
  • Over £750,001 - 12%

First-time buyers

If you're a first-time buyer it's good news as the residential nil rate band of LBTT is raised to £175,000.

From 1 April 2021, the availability of the relief will result in a reduction in tax of up to £600 for qualifying first-time buyers, relative to the rates which would have otherwise applied. You can find out more here.
