13 Mar New married couples tax break, registration now open…
HMRC have announced that registration for the new ‘Marriage Allowance’ for married couples and those in civil partnerships is now open.
It is estimated that more than 4 million married couples and 15,000 civil partnerships could benefit from an annual tax reduction of up to £212, through the new “Marriage Allowance” which comes into effect from 6th April.
From April, HMRC will contact those who have already registered for the ‘Marriage Allowance’ to apply. People can register at any point in the tax year and still receive the full benefit of the allowance. It is also possible to claim the allowance after the end of the tax year where claimants are unsure if they will qualify.
