Transfer £1,060 of your personal allowance to your partner

From April 2015, if you are not liable to Income Tax, or not liable to Income Tax above the Basic Rate you can transfer £1,060 of your personal allowance to your spouse or civil partner, if the recipient is not liable to Income Tax above the Basic Rate (meaning, no sacrificing Basic Rate Tax to save Higher Rate Tax!) This will save upto £212 for couples where one partner is unable to use all their personal tax allowance.
