Scotland

The land and buildings transaction tax (LBTT) cut in Scotland ended on 31 March 2021.

Stamp duty is the tax you’re required to pay whenever you buy a property.

How much you pay depends on the property’s value, what it’s going to be used for, and where in the UK the property is.

While England and Northern Ireland charge Stamp Duty Land Tax, in Wales it’s Land Transaction Tax (LTT), and in Scotland it’s Land and Buildings Transaction Tax (LBTT).
