Have Tax Questions? Ask a Tax Expert for Answers ASAP
Hi. My name is Tony. I'm looking at your question now and will post my answer or ask for more information here in a short while.
Are you and your parents UK or Greek nationals? Where do your parents live?
Leave this with me while I draft my answer.
The recipient of a gift does not pay tax on it in the UK. You should, however, keep a record of the gift in the form of a letter from your parents so that if you are asked about its provenance you have proof. You might also alert your bank in advance of the transfer into your UK bank account to avoid delays in accessing it due to money laundering procedures.
As foreign domiciles your parents estates would only be liable to UK Inheritance Tax on their UK based assets when they die. Assuming the gift to you will be made from a non-UK source then there will be no Inheritance Tax implications for their estates.
I hope this helps but let me know if you have any further questions.
