Personal Allowance relates to Income Tax, which is a levy paid on certain types of income. For people to sort out their Income Tax, they must deal with Her Majesty’s Revenue and Customs (HMRC), and this will be the case for millions of people. While Income Tax can differ when it comes to different types of employees, for example those on PAYE compared to people who are self-employed, Personal Allowance affects many.

Above a set level of Personal Allowance, tax must be paid relevant to the amount a person earns.

The government has explained the current levels for people to bear in mind.

Its website reads: “The standard Personal Allowance is £12,500, which is the amount if income you do not have to pay tax on.

“Your Personal Allowance may be bigger if you claim Marriage Allowance or Blind Person’s Allowance.

“It’s smaller if your income is over £100,000.”

But it has now been confirmed Personal Allowance will increase in the new tax year.

Personal Allowance will rise in accordance with inflation, which is formally known as the Consumer Prices Index (CPI).

This means Britons can expect an increase to Personal Allowance of 0.5 percent. 


The decision was first announced in the Chancellor Rishi Sunak’s Spending Review.
