Marriage Allowance allows a lower earning partner transfer £1,260 of their Personal Allowance to a husband, wife or civil partner.
To benefit as a couple (a) the lower earner must normally have an income below their Personal Allowance in tax year – the standard Personal Allowance for taxpayers is £12,750; and (b) the higher earner must have been a “Basic Rate” taxpayer.
The present English & Welsh tax bands are as follows:-
|Band||Taxable Income||Tax rate|
|Personal Allowance||Up to £12,570||0%|
|Higher rate||£50,271 to £150,000||40%|
