Hi all,
Rewards paid in referral programs or for opening bank accounts are considered income (for people, not businesses)? If it is, what category is it?

Hi @AngelicaC 

 

I wasnt quite sure what you were asking. However, if your query is related to receiving a prize or benefit offered by a bank through an investment related lottery, such as cash, low-interest or interest-free loans or maybe even holidays or a car then for an individual, they all should be included as category 1 income at question 24 on the tax return. See 24 Other income 2020 for more information.
