How to pay SLfT

Guidance on how to pay SLfT for online or paper returns.

Please note - Our bank account details have changed. See the table below for more information.

The method of payment varies depending on whether you submit an online or paper return.

Online Return

  • After submitting the online SLfT return, a unique 9 character Transaction Reference (commencing “RSL”) will be displayed on the screen.
  • This reference must be quoted when making payments in relation to the transaction or when contacting us about the transaction.
  • Please ensure that your payment exactly matches the rounded amount on your tax return.

Payment Date

Where an amount of SLfT is due in relation to the transaction, the rules vary depending on the payment method you select. After you select ‘Submit’ and choose a payment method, the latest payment date will be displayed on the return.

The latest ‘Payment Date’ must be a banking day.

The latest payment date will be the earlier of:

  • The fifth working day after the submission date
