UK tax questions? Ask a UK tax advisor for answers ASAP
Hello, I am one of the experts on Just Answer and pleased to be able to help you with your question.
You can, the UK has no Gifts Tax (GT) regime so the money will come to her tax free. Just thank your lucky stars she doesn't live in France where GT kicks in at 5K Euros! Make sure she warns her bank of incoming funds and their source to preclude any money laundering inquiries a large sum might otherwise attract.
I do hope that you have found my reply of assistance.
