There are no income tax implications on the receipt of a cash gift unless the cash gift generates interest or dividends.
These would then potentially be subject to tax.

Hi I am a naturalised UK citizen/UK tax payer. I married legally in 2021/religious ceremony in 2022. One of my parents with no ties to the UK wishes to give me a cash gift of USD 7,000 on the occasion of my marriage (transfer this amount from abroad). Given that some time has passed since the wedding, do I have to declare this and do I get taxed for it? Thank you very much.

I would like to transfer some money from my Polish account into English one around £30,000. The money comes from the sales of flat in Poland which happened a few years ago.The Flat was left for me by my grandmother in her will as a gift and I did not have to pay taxes when I came into possession of the flat in Poland. Will I need to declare the transfer from overseas account into English one with HMRC and also explain what the source of the money is with HMRC for example translate the will? Will I need to pay taxes in the UK? I have a settled status in the UK and have been living here and paying taxes for the last 10 years. Can someone please advise? Best, Agnieszka
