In his Budget speech last month, the Treasury Minister announced changes in income tax personal allowances and the 10% tax rate band as follows:
Personal allowances 2017/18 2016/17
Single person £12,500 £10,500
Jointly assessed couples £25,000 £21,000
10% tax rate band
Single person £6,500 £8,500
Jointly assessed couples £13,000 £17,000
The Income Tax Division is preparing to issue 2017/18 tax codes to people in employment. If the only change to an employee’s tax code is as a result of the above, a coding notice (form T1) will not be issued to the employee. Employers, however, will be notified of all changes to their employees’ tax codes.
