Hi people,

I am traveling to UK in a month, to join my wife . I am going as a dependent and do not have any bank accounts in the UK, also do not hold UK passport.

I will have to be transferring funds (money that I earned in Dubai) in an efficient way such that I do not lose much money during transfers

1. Do I have to pay taxes (since I have never worked there) when I move funds to UK?
2. What happens if I transfer my funds to my wife's account in the UK? Will she be taxed?
3. If not what is the best way to send money?
