According to HM Revenue & Customs guidance, in order to qualify for Marriage Allowance one of you will generally either need to pay no income tax or have an income below the Personal Allowance (typically £12,500, according to HMRC).
The other partner in the marriage or legally-registered Civil Partnership will need to pay income tax at the basic rate (20%) which, according to HMRC guidance, generally means this partner will need to earn more than £12,500 but less than £50,000 per year.
