I'm a little stuck... Click here to teach me more about this clue!

'share things out' is the definition.
'allot' can be an answer for 'share' (I've seen this before). I'm not sure about the 'things out' bit.

'everybody may have to' is the wordplay.
'everybody' becomes 'all' (I've seen this before).
'may have' says to put letters next to each other.
'to' becomes 'ot' (I am not sure about this - if you are sure you should give a lot more credence to this answer).

(Other definitions for allot that I've seen before include "Apportion (something to someone)" , "Give as a share, or a task to be done" , "Ration" , "Dispense or distribute" , "Parcel out, assign" .)

I've seen this clue in the Evening Standard.
