Thank you for your question.You can transfer up to £1,060 of your personal allowance to your husband, wife or cilvil partner. Provided you meet these two requirements, your wife will be able to transfer her unused personal allowance up to £1,060- your income is between £10,600 and £42,385 .. i.e you are a basic rate tax payer,- you and your partner were born on or after 6 Apr 1935.
