How it Works
Marriage Allowance lets you transfer £1,100 of your Personal Allowance to your husband, wife or civil partner – if they earn more than you. This reduces their tax by up to £220 in the tax year (6 April to 5 April the next year).
If you were eligible for Marriage Allowance in the 2015 to 2016 tax year, you can backdate your claim to 6 April 2015 and reduce the tax paid by up to £432.
Who can apply?
You can get Marriage Allowance if all the following apply:
- You’re married or in a civil partnership (not just living together)
- You don’t earn anything or your annual income is under £11,000
- Your partner’s income is between £11,001 and £43,000.
