When sending money to UK keep in mind that different tax regulations may apply depending on many factors including:

  • how the money is going to be used.
  • how much you are sending.
  • the source of the funds.
  • if the money has been taxed elsewhere.

For example, for tax purposes, supporting family members by paying for living expenses can sometimes be considered different from sending large sums as a gift.
