Hi edgarcmwong,

The transfer of the money as a gift is not for HMRC to decide, that is between you are your mother.

There is no tax relief in respect of the payment you give back as it is not related to your employment.

Thank you.

Hello HMRC admin, please could you answer my post above? Apologies for chasing but I've little time to go back to my mum on this, through no fault of mine. I'd immensely appreciate if you could answer so I can be sure to do the right thing. Many thanks in advance.

Hi Astrid A,

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 tax.

Further guidance can be found here:

Tax on savings interest

Tax on dividends

Thank you.

Dear HMRC, In October 2022, my brother gifted me c.GBP320,000 to help me with my first house purchase. He is a Turkish citizen and lived and worked many years in Turkey, and currently a legal resident and worker in Romania. So the total GBP320,000 came in part from his savings account in Turkey and in part from his bank account in Romania. While bank-transferring the money to me in the UK, he provided source of wealth confirmation to the banks in form of his payslips and employer confirmation letters confirming source of funds, as well as the bank accounts statements where the money accumulated over the years. I'm a UK tax resident. I live and work in the UK and pay taxes to the UK. Do I need to declare and/or pay taxes on the gift my brother send me to help me buy my first house?

Hi I am a UK resident on visa working full time. My father who is back in India would like to support me with some money every month due to the rising cost here. He is planning to send to 1500 pounds every month to my uk bank account (it is not a savings account, it does not generate any interest). Do I need to tax this money that I receive. Regards

Dear HMRC, I'm a tax paying UK resident. My parents are planning to give me cash gifts by depositing cash to my bank account in Hong Kong and then I'll transfer money from my bank account in HK to my bank account in UK. I'd like to ask 1) Is it regarded as cash gift? 2) Do I need to provide document to prove the source of money? 3) I understand that I have to pay tax for bank interest but just to confirm whether I have to pay tax in addition to bank interest. Thank you very much!

Hello HMRC, I am a UK resident. I'm buying a property in the UK and my overseas parents are giving me a cash gift for the purchase. I understand cash gifts are not taxable unless the income generates revenue. My question is, is the cash gift exposed to inheritance tax should my something happen to my parents (who are not UK citizens and do not have residency/are domiciled in the UK)? Thanks in advance.

Dear HMRC I am a tax paying BNO VISA holder (In UK over 230 days) I have received cash gift worth £100,000 from my mother who lives in HONG KONG. Do I have to declare this and do I get taxed for it? Do I need to pay income tax or any other tax? Estate tax if my mother passed away within certain years?
