The Office of Tax Simplification (OTS) has not made an assessment of the proposals for a transferable tax allowance.

This policy will be delivered in the simplest, most user-friendly way possible as part of the Government's commitment to user-friendly digital services. The Government has also provided more than £200 million over the next three years as part of HMRC's digital strategy to make paying tax easier for ordinary people.

The OTS is currently focusing on a project to improve the competitiveness of the UK tax administration.
