Hi.Let me take a look at this and I'll get back to you.
Expert:  TonyTax replied 1 year ago.
Hi again.Whilst bank interest earned by non-UK residents from UK bank accounts is taxable, it will normally be covered by the personal allowance of the recipient and tax repayment claim would need to be made. As an alternative, you could apply to have the interest paid gross by competing a form R105 for each bank or building society that you deal with. You should be aware, however, that not all banks and building societies will accept these and will deduct tax from the interest. The R105 is here:https://www.gov.uk/government/publications/income-tax-application-for-a-not-resident-saver-to-receive-interest-without-tax-taken-off-r105I hope this helps but let me know if you have any further questions.

The tax on the interest of savings in the bank - I understand.
What I don't know is: should I pay tax on ,for example, 30,000 pounds that I have transferred from overseas to Barclays bank UK?
I have read some stuff and I think I am not UK domiciled.
Expert:  TonyTax replied 1 year ago.
You won't have to pay tax on the £30,000 that you have invested in the UK. You are probably UK domiciled and, as such, your worldwide estaes will potentially be liable to Inheritance Tax when you die. Take a look here for information on domicile in section 5 here: https://www.gov.uk/government/uploads/system/uploads/attachment_data/file/464664/RDR1_FB15_updates_RB_and_CGT.pdf
