Hi, My parents residing in India will be transferring some cash to my UK bank account as gift. I’ll use this to pay my mortgage overpayment . Do I need to pay tax for the amount transferred by my parents ?

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.
