Could you be eligible for the marriage allowance?

Did you know that you can transfer up to 10% of your personal allowance to your married/civil partner. This means that up to £1,250 can be transferred to the partner that earns more - upping their personal allowance and helping them to reduce the tax that they pay.


So who is eligible?


Are you married or in a civil partnership.

One of you earns less then the personal allowance so is not liable to tax.

You were born after 1935.
