If your spouse has some unused personal allowance, if you haven't done so already, you may be able to elect to transfer these and add them to your own personal allowance through an adjustment to your tax code.
So long as;
- Both spouses are born after 6 April 1935
- One spouse has an annual income between £10,601 and £42,385
- The other spouse has income below £10,600 for the year to 5 April 2016. Or £11,000 from 6 April 2016.
If all the above apply, you should be eligible for this tax break.
