Utilise Marriage Allowance for 2019/20

As the end of tax year draws closer, couples who are married or in a civil partnership can transfer up to £1,260 of their personal allowance. This will reduce their tax by a maximum of:

Tax Year Marriage Allowance amount

2023/24 £252

2022/23 £252

2021/22 £252

2020/21 £250

2019/20 £250

Claims for Marriage Allowance can be backdated for the previous 4 tax years. Now is your last chance to claim for 2019/20 and eligible couples backdating for the last 4 years could receive a lump-sum of just over £1,000. Plus save an additional £252 in tax year 2023/24.

To benefit as a couple, you (as the lower earner) must normally have an income below your Personal Allowance - this is usually £12,570. Use GOV.UK Marriage Allowance calculator to find out if you're eligible (link below).
