YEAR-END TAX GUIDE 2017/18

PERSONAL ALLOWANCES AND RELIEFS

The personal allowance for the current tax year is £11,500. Non-savings income above the personal allowance is
taxed at rates from 20% to 45%.

A higher marginal tax rate may be payable between £100,000 and £123,000 when the personal allowance is gradually
withdrawn, giving an effective marginal rate of 60% in this band for non-savings and savings income.

You may be able to transfer £1,150 of your personal allowance to your spouse or civil partner if neither of you is a
higher rate taxpayer.

Generally speaking, it is relevant when one spouse or civil partner is not able to use all of their personal allowance.
