Marriage Allowance

The Marriage Allowance is a tax relief available to share between civil partners and spouses. It allows either partner to transfer £1060 of their £10600 annual personal allowance to the other civil partner or spouse.

How does this effect you and your partner?
This effectively means a reduction of £212 tax in your partners or spouses income tax liability.

Do You Qualify?
You may be eligible for the marriage allowance if:

  • both partner’s income is between £10,601 and £42,385
  • both partners were born on or after 6 April 1935
  • both partners are entitled to a personal allowance
