Did you know – you could be missing out on receiving a marriage allowance?

Not everyone is aware of the government’s Marriage Allowance so make sure you are not missing out

  •   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).
  •   To benefit as a couple, you (as the lower earner) must have an income of £11,000 or less. You can calculate how much tax you’ll pay as a couple.
  •   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.
