Is starting rate for savings applicable to remittance basis? And what is the threshold amount?

Yes it is allowable and the same rate applies as if you were claiming the arising basis.
For remittance basis, please see guidance at Paying tax on the remittance basis (Self Assessment helpsheet HS264)

Thank you

Suppose in 2022-23, a UK tax resident has income from wages, saving interest and without other source of income. Wages are £13,000 and savings interest is £8,000. On a remittance basis, the UK tax resident has to pay £13,000 x 20% + (£8,000-(£5,000-(£13,000-£12,570)) -£1,000) x 20% = £2,600+£486 = £3,086. Please advise if it is correct.

Hi WM,
You would have your personal allowance of £12570 to set against your £13000 salary. You would then have the £1000 savings allowance set against savings interest with the balance at 20%. 
Thank you.

Does it mean on remittance basis, starting rate for saving applies as long as the wages are less than £17,570?

Hi WH,
Under the remittance basis, the starting rate for savings is not available.
You will receive the personal savings allowance of £1000 (basic rate), £500 (higher rate) or £0 (additional rate) depending on the level of income.
Thank you.
