Hi N/A,

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.
Further guidance can be found here.

Tax on savings interest

Tax on dividends

Thank you.

Hi PatNick,

There are no Income Tax implications of a cash gift of this nature. Any interest the gift generates, is taxable and should be declared.

You may wish to contact our Inheritance Tax team regarding any Inheritance Tax implications.

Thank you.

If I receive a gift of £70,000 from a relative who lives in USA and is not a UK resident or citizen, will I have to pay tax on that gift?

I may receive a ~200k gift from Sweden, are there tax implications? Also, even if there are no tax implications (I have a feeling both Swedish and UK rules say there are not), how do I know which rules I am applying? (I want to follow the correct trail of documents and references, not just get the right answer).
