Shared Parental Pay (ShPP) and Shared Parental Leave (SPL) for babies born or due after 5th April

Allows working mothers the option to end their maternity pay and leave early (after 2 weeks of birth (or placement for adoption)) and to share untaken leave and pay with their partner, to enable partners to take a greater role in caring for the child. Shared Parental Leave can be stopped and started, and parents can be off at the same time.  Parents must give their employers 8 weeks notice of their SPL plans.  And all ShPP and SPL must be taken before the childs 1st birthday.


Marriage Allowance

If your income is less than £10,600 in the 2015 to 2016 tax year, you may be able to reduce your husband, wife or civil partner’s tax by up to £212. The new Marriage Allowance will let you transfer some of your Personal Allowance to your partner. This is the amount of income people can get before paying tax. Marriage Allowance will be available later this year. You can register here to get an email telling you when you can claim.
