Marriage Allowance


Questions for couples:

Are you married or in a civil partnership?

Is your income less than £11,000 per year

Is your partner’s income between £11,001 and £43,000 per year?


If you answered yes to all three questions then you may be entitled to Marriage Allowance.  Marriage Allowance lets you transfer £1,100 of your Personal Allowance to your husband, wife or civil partner, reducing their tax bill 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.
