Any tax implications when transferring money into UK if non-resident?

I am a non-resident Briton who has built up a substantial amount of savings while working abroad. This money was earned from employment in foreign countries and was taxed in those countries. Are there any tax implications if I transfer some or all of this money from my offshore bank account into my UK bank account? Is there a limit to how much I can transfer into my UK account? From what I have read so far, this answer is "no" and "no", however I am nervous about tax and would appreciate some reassurance...

citizenship tax and student loans

I'm a US citizen with indefinite leave to remain in the UK. I want to apply for UK citizenship. I have defaulted student loans in the US and haven't filed my taxes in the US for ten years while I've lived here in the UK. Am I going to need to get straight with the US before I can naturalise as a UK citizen? I intend to pay / file what needs paid and filed but what order should I do it in?
