I received a 'REFUND - WELCOME REWARD' of GBP 500 into my UK bank account. Would this GBP 500 be counted as taxable income? Thank you.

Hi Cheuk Hang Sin,

It depends if there are any 'ties'.
Please refer to guidance at SAIM8020 - Annual payments: meaning of annual payment and the associated links

Thank you.

Dear HMRC Admin, Thank you for your response. From my understanding, the one-off 'refund - welcome reward payment' was not an annual payment, because it was not a recurring payment and not extended for more than a year. Since the 'refund - welcome reward' does not possess all four characteristics at the same time, should it be not classified as an annual payment? Thank you.

No, it should not.

Thank you.
