Farmers Averaging and Marriage Allowance

Interaction of Farmers Averaging and Marriage Allowance

Didn't find your answer?

Example situation:
Farmer husband 15/16 Nil taxable, 16/17 £30,000 taxable.
Wife employed earns £5,000 in 15/16 and 16/17.
Husband averages in 16/17, so averaged profit in both years is £15,000.
Can Wife transfer Marriage allowance in both 15/16 and 16/17?
16/17 is clearly ok, but what about 15/16?

In the case you describe marriage allowance is applicable for both years (after amendment of the averaged return).

Of course you can claim.

That's the whole point of averaging.
