I am currently unemployed with no income. Question 1: Do I need to submit a self assessment for my overseas savings interest which is less than GBP 0.4? Question 2: I also have UK savings interest which is around GBP 0.5, do I need to submit a self assessment? Many thanks for your reply.

Given the very low amounts of overseas investment income you receive, you would not have to complete a Self Assessment Tax Return.                                                      

Check if you need to send a Self Assessment tax return

Thank you.

If my husband is currently unemployed and his only income is the saving interests earned is less than £10 from UK bank and about £200 from banks in Hong Kong (foreign banks). Does he need to file the self assessment tax returns?

Yes he will as he is in receipt of foreign income.

Thank you.

If you are in receipt of an overseas income / capital gain, then this should be declared in a self assessment tax return.  
If your world-wide income is below the personal allowance of £12570, then no tax is payable.
