New Marriage Allowance


If your income is less than £10,600 in the 2015 to 2016 tax year, you may be able to reduce your husband, wife or civil partner’s tax by up to £212.

The new Marriage Allowance will let you transfer some of your Personal Allowance to your partner. This is the amount of income people can get before paying tax.

You’ll be able to claim Marriage Allowance if all the following apply:

you’re married or in a civil partnership
you have an annual income of less than £10,600 - including pensions, savings and investments
your spouse or civil partner has an annual income of between £10,601 and £42,385
you were both born on or after 6 April 1935

If these apply to you then get in touch and we may be able to help you.
