The Marriage Allowance is a UK government scheme designed to give low-income married couples or civil partners income tax relief.
Basically, you’re able to transfer 10% of your tax-free Personal Allowance to your spouse or partner if you earn less than the current Personal Allowance (£12,500 currently) and they’re a basic rate taxpayer (they make between £12,500-£50,000). This can reduce their tax bill by up to £250 over the year.
