I have been closing one of my UK bank accounts and the advisor asked me if I have an account abroad and what my tax code for that is. This really confused me as this is the first time anyone asked this.
I am an EU citizen with settled status in the UK. I have one bank account in an EU country. I do not earn any interest on this account, nor does any income come into it.
There were only a few times when used this account in recent years:
I bought a small cheap property there for my mother to live in (it is not rented) and it is in my name.
I have transferred some money for renovations for this property.
I have transferred some money to pay my mom's medical bills.
Now I am really worried that I should have mentioned this account to HMRC somewhere but I have not been earning anything on that money, so I did not think to do it until this advisor asked me about it. Can someone please advise what/if I need to do anything about this?
