Scottish housing advice: coronavirus (COVID-19)

Land and building transaction tax

From 15 July 2020 the zero rate band for Land and Buildings Transaction Tax increased, from £145,000 to £250,000. This means when you buy a property you won't pay tax on the first £250,000. This will be in place until 31 March 2021.
