How to sign up to the online portal

This guidance will help you to sign up to use Revenue Scotland’s Online Portal for online submission of LBTT returns and electronic payment of tax.

Purpose of this guidance

This is not guidance to the tax itself. LBTT legislation guidance for taxpayers and agents is available separately on our website.

General guidance

Only one member of your organisation should sign up in the first instance. Once their user account is created, they can then setup further administrators and users.

If you are experiencing any difficulties with this process, you can contact our support desk for further assistance.

Please Note: We are currently unable to sign up private individuals acting in an individual capacity. From 1 April 2015, individuals who wish to submit their own LBTT returns must do so by downloading and completing the paper LBTT return and then submitting it by post to Registers of Scotland at the address provided.
