About the Seller

How to complete the 'About the Seller' section of the online LBTT return.

Note: If there are two or more sellers, in the ‘List of Additional Sellers’ area near the bottom of the screen select ‘Add’ each time you need to add an additional seller (there are no limits to the number of sellers that can be added). You can edit or delete the information about any additional sellers by selecting ‘Edit’ and ‘Delete’ respectively.

This section is divided into three sub-sections:

Questions for the ‘Private Individuals and Representatives’ sub-section

Questions for the ‘Incorporated Bodies’ sub-section

Questions for the ‘Agent Details’ sub-section
