Allegiant Finance Services Limited is a claims management company authorised and regulated by the Financial Conduct Authority.  Firm Reference Number: 836810.  We are registered with the Information Commissioners Office: Z2569335. Our VAT Registration No. is 274837662.  You are in safe hands. We are a longstanding company that has helped UK consumers recover over £50 million in refunds. We are proud to have an “Excellent” rating on Trustpilot with over 700 genuine customer reviews.

We like to be clear about who we are, and what we do. We offer a paid for tax retax refund service. We are not HMRC. Whilst many customers prefer to use a claims assistance service, it is important to let you know that can make a claim yourself directly to HMRC for free.

Following the Income Allowance Tax Act 2007, the law was changed to give married couples a tax credit where one partner does not pay income tax (because their taxable earnings are within their tax personal allowance) and where the other partner is a basic rate taxpayer.

In a nutshell, a marriage tax allowance transfer allows the lower earner in the partnership to transfer £1,250 of their personal allowance to the higher earning partner. The effect of this can mean a tax refund of up to £250 a year (which can be backdated by 4 years). It also means that going forward, you will also pay less tax.

Please note that we do not provide tax advice and will not advise you on any tax entitlement other than a marriage tax allowance claim irrespective of our appointment as an agent for HMRC purposes.

We do not provide tax advice. It is for you to determine whether you believe a marriage allowance claim is advantageous in your circumstances. For almost all qualifying customers, a claim will be advantageous. Possible considerations include (but are not limited to):-

ProsCons
·        You could be entitled to cash in hand as a result of the claim.

·        Making a marriage allowance tax transfer request could reduce your future tax payments in subsequent years

·        Making any form of tax claim will cause HMRC to reconcile your account. Historically underpaid tax could be picked up by HMRC on reviewing a claim leading to a requirement for you to reimburse HMRC if you have not been paying enough tax.

·        Marriage tax allowance must be claimed in full – it cannot be applied for in part. The allowance is £1,250 for the 2020/21 tax year. For a minority of couples, a marriage tax allowance transfer could result in an increased total tax bill meaning you would be worse off. This would only happen if the lower earner’s income is more than 90% of the personal allowance (i.e. between £11,250 and £12,500 in 2020/21) and the higher earner income is less than 110% of the personal allowance (i.e. is between £12,501 and £13,750 in the 2020/21 tax year.

To verify and progress your claim, we may ask you for one or more of the following:-

  • P60 / P45 for a relevant tax year;
  • Bank statement or wage slip proving salary / National Insurance number;
  • Photographic ID (if we cannot verify your details).

We offer a true “No Refund, No Fee” service. Our Success Fee is 36% inclusive of VAT.

There are no upfront or hidden fees.

Claims usually take around 6 – 16 weeks but can be quicker or longer. We cannot promise timescales as there may be delays that are outside our control. We will however perform our duties promptly.

Our agreement to act for you does not mean that you are guaranteed success, nor does using a paid for assistance service increase your chances of success.

If you change your mind, you have a 14-day cooling off period during which you can cancel without charge. After 14-days, you can cancel with us and we will withdraw your claim with HMRC. If our work results in a payment to you after cancellation, we retain the right to charge our Success Fee.

We will update you once we have assessed your claim, submitted your claim and once we have a response from HMRC. We will also liaise with you to discuss any additional information or verification we need to progress your marriage tax allowance request tax refund.
