Hey - I know this has been posted in the dim & distant past - but memories are short. This could be a free £435 for you and your friends, so read on.

Marriage Allowance lets you transfer £1,100 of your Personal Allowance to your husband, wife or civil partner.

This can reduce their tax by up to £220 every tax year (6 April to 5 April the next year).

To benefit as a couple, you need to earn less than your partner and have an income of £11,000 or less.

If you were eligible for Marriage Allowance in the 2015 to 2016 tax year, you can backdate your claim to 6 April 2015.

And don't forget
"your partner’s income is between £11,001 and £43,000"
So if my income is more than £11K and my partner doesn't work, can I claim this Tax?

Yes! One of you needs to be a non-taxpayer, which usually just means earning less than the £11,000 personal allowance (£10,600 for 2015/16).
The other one of you needs to be a basic 20% rate taxpayer (couples with a higher- or additional-rate taxpayer aren't eligible for this allowance). This means you'd normally need to earn less than £43,000 (£42,385 for 2015/16)

youll only get the 2015-2016 rebated, and just pay less tax for this year (2016-2017). Your tax code(s) will be adjusted-the higher salary allowance increased, and the lower allowance lowered. If the lower salary goes over the tax allowance, then you wont be any better off, but you wont be any less off either-so nothing to lose by doing it.
Of course of you have a partner who can't be bothered to work then you have bigger problems than a little bit of tax

Only if you are a basic tax rate payer. Not if you pay the higher rate of tax.

I wouldn't call 9 weeks ago a 'dim and distant past'! But hot anyway for telling those who missed it before.
Who needs to apply for this, tax payer or the non tax payer?

Who needs to apply for this, tax payer or the non tax payer?


the person giving the tax allowance is the person that makes the application
I'm self-employed (earning less than £10k) and haven't yet filled my tax return for 2015/16. Wasn't planning on do it for another month - is there a time limit for claiming for 2015/16?
