Irrespective of age or date of birth, this allowance is reduced by £1 for every £2 of income over £100,000, until completely withdrawn, leading to a marginal tax rate of 60% on income in the band from £100,000 to £125,000 (2019/20) and £100,000 to £125,000 (2020/21).

From April 2015 a spouse or civil partner will be entiled to transfer up to £1,060 of their personal allowance to their spouse or civil partner. Couples where neither partner is a higher or additional rate taxpayer will be eligible.
