Payment of fees

When you apply to record in the Sasine Register or register in the Land Register, you'll need to submit the appropriate payment with your application. You can pay by:

  • direct debit
  • cheque

Advance notices which are first registrations or transfers of part can be paid by your usual payment method - direct debit or cheque. Advance notices which are dealings of whole must be paid by direct debit.

We can only accept payment for ARTL by direct debit.

All other services are post-paid and you will receive an invoice from us. Payment options for these services are:

  • direct debit
  • credit card
  • debit card
  • direct credit
  • cheque

Invoices are due for payment 30 days from issue, apart from Registers Direct invoices, which are due for payment 14 days from issue.


VAT is payable on non-registration services.

No VAT is payable on registration, including advance notices.

Multi-site customers

If your business has more than one office, you'll need to set up a unique account number (known as a FAS number) for each office. This helps us return documentation to the right place.

You can still use a single bank account and a single direct debit instruction to make payments for all your business's registration needs under the same service, but you should tell us the individual FAS numbers that the mandate applies.
