Hello,

Yes, they are allowed to do so as these personal allowances apply to anyone resident in the UK for tax purposes, they are not tied down to nationality, but UK residency.

Each person i.e. both the husband and wife would be entitled to the following personal allowance depending on their date of birth:

Personal Allowance

2014 to 15 tax year

Income limit

Born after 5 April 1948

£10,000

£100,000

Born between 6 April 1938 and 5 April 1948

£10,500

£27,000

Born before 6 April 1938

£10,660

£27,000
