Claiming Marriage Allowance claim will generally transfer up to 10% of the Personal Allowance from the low earner to the higher-earner.
This transfer generally has no cost to the low-earner, who doesn’t earn enough to fully use up their Personal Allowance anyway. The tax refund is paid out to the higher earner directly from HMRC.
However, it is your responsibility to ensure that HMRC is kept updated with your entitlement for the tax break. If your entitlement changes and you no longer meet the eligibility criteria for the tax break, you will need to let HMRC know.
If you wish to receive any guidance or advice, please contact HM Revenue & Customs by telephone on 0300 200 3300.
