Personal Allowances

The standard personal allowance is £11,500 for 2017/18. Autumn 2017 Budget announced that the allowance will rise to £11,850 from 6 April 2018.

The transferrable marriage allowance applies from 6 April 2015 to couples (married or civil partners) where neither person pays tax at the 40% or 45% rates. The spouse who cannot use all their personal allowance against their own income may opt to transfer 10% of their personal allowance to their spouse or civil partner.

The personal allowance is tapered away for individuals who have income over £100,000, at the rate of £1 for every £2 of income above that threshold.

The allowances for recent years are as follows:
