The Rent a Room relief ensures that those who are letting out a room in a main residence for residential purposes can receive up to £4,250 tax free. This is in addition to the personal allowance, which is £10,000 in the current tax year.

There are no plans to change the threshold for the Rent a Room scheme. The Government keeps all reliefs and allowances under review.
