Hi, I am a Hong Kong citizen and plan to come to UK very soon as a UK tax resident. When I first arrive to UK, I will be using my Hong Kong credit card to purchase goods before I can open a bank account to receive a debit card in UK and my family will help settle my credit card payment in Hong Kong. Can you please advise if there is any tax implication or do I need to file tax return/pay tax if my family will be paying for my credit card payment? Thanks!

Hi,

There are no income tax implications for using a credit card to purchase goods. 

Thank you.

Just to double confirm, is there no tax implication even if my parents are using their money to settle my credit card payment? Thank you!

Or just to put it simply, is there any tax implication if my parents are sending money to my credit card account to settle the payment?
