Where do I report a gift of money from family on my self-assessment tax form please?

There are no Income Tax implications on the receipt of a cash gift unless the cash gift generates interest or dividends, so it should not be declared in a self assessment tax return. These would then potentially be subject to tax.

Further guidance can be found here:

Tax on savings interest

Tax on dividends

If the gift is from a resident in the UK, they may wish to consider inheritance tax implications, that may arise from the gift.  

They may wish to review the guidance below for more advice.
