Property Tax Advice from The Kelvin Partnership
Scottish Property Tax
In Scotland, Stand Duty Land Tax (SDLT) was replaced by the Land and Building Transaction Tax (LBTT) in 2015. LBTT is a tax applied to the transactions of residential and commercial land and buildings.
What is Land and Buildings Transaction Tax? (LBTT)
You are obligated to pay LBTT when buying a residential property or land, which costs more than £145,000. This tax obligation still applies even if you are buying the property with a mortgage or not. Depending on how much the property you are buying costs there are several bands of LBTT tax. The Kelvin Partnership team will make you aware of the band you fall into and so, the necessary payment. Also, if you are buying a second home or a buy-to-let property you are still obligated to pay 3% extra of LBTT tax.
