Who is Eligible for the UK Marriage Allowance?
The UK Marriage Allowance is a valuable tax break available to married couples and civil partners who are both UK taxpayers. This allowance allows one partner to transfer up to £1,150 of their unused tax-free Personal Allowance to their partner, reducing their partner’s tax bill.
The UK Marriage Allowance was introduced in April 2015 and is open to couples where one partner earns more than the other. The partner earning less than £12,570 (2021/2022 and 2022/2023 can transfer up to £1,260 of their unused allowance to their partner, reducing their partner’s tax bill.
