Marriage Tax Allowance


Marriage Tax Allowance

If you’re married, you may be entitled to receive £1,150 from HMRC! Over 2.4 million qualifying couples miss out on this – check below to see if you are eligible.

This works by allowing you to transfer £1,250 of your personal allowance (the amount you can earn tax-free each tax year) to your spouse, if they’re a basic rate taxpayer.

  • One of you must be a basic-rate taxpayer (earn less than £50,000/year) and the other a non-taxpayer (earn less than £12,500/year).
  • You must be married or in a civil partnership.
  • You both must be born after 6 April 1935.



These are the maximum amounts you could receive for each tax year:

  • 2015/2016 – £212 (deadline 5 April 2020)
  • 2016/2017 – £220
  • 2017/2018 – £230
  • 2018/2019 – £238
  • 2019/2020 – £250


Deadline: Time is running out to claim the marriage tax allowance for 2015/16.

To benefit from claiming for the last 4 years, you must apply before the 5th of April 2020 to potentially receive the full £1,150.


Do It Yourself!

Applying for the marriage tax allowance is simple and most importantly FREE. We advise that you only apply through the HMRC website to avoid paying unnecessary fees. However, if your accountants do your tax return for you, they can also do this for you.


How to apply:

Use the following link to apply. The application is to be done by the non-taxpayer.
