Hi, my mother lives in Germany and would like to gift me some money. I live in the UK and pay my taxes in the UK. I have read on a community thread that I don't have to pay taxes on this money, unless it makes a capital gain. However, I also read that I am only allowed a gift of 3000£ per year. I'm very confused. What is correct? Thank you

Hi The Dude Saunders,
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.
