Hi cloudthegp,

There are no Income Tax implications on the receipt of a cash gift unless the income generates interest or dividends. These would then potentially be subject to Income Tax. Further guidance can be found here:

Tax on savings interest

Tax on dividends

Thank you.

Hi h l,

If it is interest in UK bank accounts, HMRC will automatically receive the information.

If it is foreign bank accounts then yes, this needs to be reported.

Tax on foreign income

Thank you.

Hi HMRC, If I am older than 18 years old, living in the UK and my mother living out of the UK give me 2,000 pounds per month, is it still exempt of tax? I red that there is a potential limitation to an exempt cash gift: is that correct? Thank you!

Hi S G, 

You do not need to pay tax on the funds that you transfer unless it generates any interest once here.

However, you do need to report the sale of the property to declare any capital gain.

You can find guidance here: 

Tax when you sell property

Thank you.

Dear HMRC, I would like to know if I, as a French resident, pay an "almony pension" (2,000 pounds per month) to my daughter doing her studies in the United Kingdom, my daughter will have to pay taxes or not? This almony pension is paid only in order to permit to my daughter to live and study. Thank you very much for your work.

Hi HMRC, I relocated from Hong Kong to UK in July 2022. My partner in Hong Kong, who is not an UK resident, gave me a cash gift of GBP 26,000 by wire transfer in Aug 22. Is that any guideline for cash gift from overseas and shall I delcare it to HMRC ? If yes, how to declare it ? Thank you.

Hi, I arrive in UK in Aug 2022 via spouse visa and work remotely for Hong Kong. Understand that I am considered as UK tax resident, a friend of mine in Hong Kong requires a short term fund of GBP40,000 that I need to use my savings to transfer to him, and then he will repay me back in two weeks of time. The savings are from income I made before I arrived to UK. May I know if the amount of bank-in in repayment would have income tax implications? And what kind of documents are required to prove this? Thanks. Best regards, Eric

There are no tax implications on the giving or receipt of cash gifts, but your parents may wish to speak to inheritance tax regarding any inheritance tax implications How Inheritance Tax works: thresholds, rules and allowances and Inheritance Tax: general enquiries.

Thnk you.

Hi Parry,

The same rules apply. You would need to declare any interest that the gift generated as foreign income.

Thank you.
