  • Spousal self assessment

    With the cost of living going up, my wife and I have decided that we will start freelancing this year to get some income. At present, £0-£12,570 is a zero tax band, which I assume applies to both us. With that in mind, my question is whether we can submit a spousal self assessment where our combined income would be taxed at a zero rate if it's below £25,140 (£12,570 each) or must we maintain separate accounts and submit separate self assessment returns. Thank you advance for your assistance.
