When I listen to any online tracks in the spotify catalogue it scrobbles perfectly fine. But when I use my own local files on my laptop it seemingly scrobbles at random. i.e. Some tracks are scrobbled while others are not.
It used to work perfectly fine so I assume it was an update which changed this behaviour.

Right, I had this issue as well. Thought that it was just me, or by now the issue would be solved. It's not solved yet and last.fm staff recommends the internal scrobbling instead of the app.
I went to read about this issue, and found this Issue thread. It says this should be solved for Spotify desktop client version 1.0.77.
Funnily enough I'm on the respectible version. I suggest trying reinstall if you're facing this issue too. Check this article on how to.
If you're on Windows, it's possible to do clean reinstall that removes all Spotify files prior to install.
According to the tread, turning on crossfade solves the issue.
