Re: Prize money abroad?

As far as I know any money you win from a lottery/competition abroad would be taxed, or not taxed, dependent on that country's rules. If it is taxed then you should receive the net value.

Under the UK's Money Laundering provisions you might be required to validate the source of these regular transfers from abroad. I would suggest that you contact your UK bank for advice on this matter.

Re: Tax on savings

Re: Tax return mislaid?

HMRC are notorious for mislaying paper tax returns. Might I suggest that in future you complete your tax returns online, which not only immediately calculates your tax liability, but also acknowledges receipt of your submitted return.

Re: Gift received from abroad

This question has been asked and answered so many times on this forum.

There is no tax payable on gifts received, wherever they come from.

The only tax payable would be on any interest received if the money is paid into an interest-paying account.

Re: Energy Supplier Referral Income Taxable?

If you refer a friend to your energy company and they give you money, or a discount on your bill, for doing so, then I would consider this to be a gift, and gifts are not liable to income tax.
