Section 53 – Application of this Act to licences

138.Section 53 confers a power on the Scottish Ministers to prescribe in regulations particular types of non-residential licences to occupy property which for the purposes of this Act are to be treated as land transactions and will therefore be subject to the tax. Such regulations will be subject to the affirmative procedure if they modify an Act. Otherwise, they will be subject to the negative procedure (see section 68).

139.See also paragraph 3(1)(b) of schedule 1, which exempts the grant, assignation or renunciation of licences other than prescribed non-residential licences.
