There’s over 1.9 million of the 4.2 million eligible couples missing out on the marriage tax allowance, and some of your team are likely to be amongst them.

So what is the marriage allowance?

It is a way for couples to transfer a proportion of their personal allowance between them.

Who’s eligible?

In simple terms, if you have employees who are:

  • Basic rate tax payers
  • Married or in a civil partnership with the partner earning less than £11,500
  • Born on or after 6 April 1935

How much is it worth?

Claiming this year’s and the last 2 years’ allowance, could be worth £662, which would make a massive difference to their Christmas.

How do they apply?

Why don’t you forward this onto your employees?  It’s really simple and only takes a couple of minutes, just click here and use the application form.  All they’ll need is both of their national insurance numbers and a form of ID for the non-tax payer.  It’s the non-taxpayer who applies.
