Marriage Allowance

The marriage allowance lets you transfer 10% of your personal allowance to your husband, wife or civil partner if they earn more than you. This can reduce their tax bill by up to £230 per year.

One of the couple must be a non-tax payer (earning less than £11,500 in 2017/18) and the other must be a basic rate taxpayer (earning less than £45,000 2017/18).

This relief is one of the most under claimed allowances with approximately only 50% of eligible couples claiming the marriage allowance.

If you have missed previous tax years, it may be possible for you to reclaim up to 4 years worth of marriage allowance (although the allowance was only available from 6 April 2015).

You can apply for the marriage allowance direct from HMRC’s website by clicking here.
