Chancellor George Osborne has said Britain is within touching distance of the £10,000 personal allowance having increased it by a further £235 for April 2013.
The total increase for personal allowance for next year will be £1,335 which Osborne said was the highest cash increase ever.
This means from April next year people working in Britain can receive £9,440 before paying income tax, compared the £9,205 target the coalition government had initially set for April 2013 in this year's Budget.
