YEAR END TAX GUIDE 2021/22. PERSONAL ALLOWANCES & RELIEFS
The personal allowance is £12,570. Non-savings and non-dividend income above this threshold is taxed at rates from 20% to 45% (or 19% to 46% in Scotland).
A higher marginal tax rate may be payable between £100,000 and £125,140, as the personal allowance reduces by £1 for every £2 above £100,000. This means those with non-savings and savings income in this band have a marginal rate of 60% (61.5% in Scotland).
You may be able to transfer £1,260 of your unutilised personal allowance to your spouse or civil partner if you do not pay income tax, if certain conditions are met. This is known as the marriage allowance and could save you as a couple up to £252 in income tax.
