Thanks for your question
There is no tax on gifts made to you from any relative whether they live in the UK or not -
Let me know if I can assist further with this matter
No you do not need to report these as they are not income on which tax arises - you may wish to alert your bank if the amount is substantial as they may need to carry out security checks on the amount.
And there is NO limit on gifts re the tax - they remin free of tax
ts only the person making the gift that would need to worry about tax (inheritance tax) and gifts, but as your relatives are not in the UK, our UK Inheritance tax laws will not apply to them, so they have no UK tax to consider either.
