There is a marriage allowance worth £250 that can be claimed from HMRC each year.
Marriage Allowance Limited has taken to sending out letters and emails to people advising them to get this rebate and they will do it for you. What they don’t tell people is that although the claim is free, the company charges 42% plus a processing fee and that doesn’t leave much of the rebate remaining to actually get to the tax payer.
Their website is designed to make people believe it is HMRC.
This activity is legal as they don’t explicitly claim to be from HMRC and the company runs similar operations targeting other tax allowances.
As always, read messages carefully to see who they are actually from, be careful with Google searches not to just pick the top of the list in case it’s an advert and the official site you want is lower down the list.
If you want to claim the marriage allowance, go to www.gov.uk/apply-marriage-allowance or call 0300 200 3300
