Land and Buildings Transaction Tax (LBTT) is paid at different rates depending on the purchase price.

The table below shows the rates of LBTT someone buying their next home would pay.

Anyone buying an additional residential property in Scotland (such as a second home or buy-to-let property) may also have to pay an Additional Dwelling Supplement (ADS) if the purchase price is £40,000 or more. There is one rate of ADS and this is also shown in the table below.

Purchase price of property Rate of Land and Buildings Transaction Tax (LBTT) Additional Dwelling Supplement (ADS) on second or additional residential property
Up to £145,000 0% 4% of purchase price (paid in addition to any LBTT due)
£145,001 - £250,000 2%
£250,001 - £325,000 5%
£325,001 - £750,000 10%
Over £750,000 12%

Properties under £40,000 are not subject to Additional Dwelling Supplement (ADS) but if ADS is due it is payable on the total purchase price.
