What is your monthly take home after all deductions (tax, ni, accomodation, food etc) on basic training/new entrants wages in the british army? And are these wages only for 14weeks. If so what does the wages go upto (again after all deductions) after the 14week period? I am hoping to join the REMEas an aircraft technician if this helps.. I have already researched it with no luck found 3 or 4 things contradicting each other.. any feedback would be much appreciated cheers

And this is related to using this website.... how?

Why don't you contact your local Army Recruiting Office and ask them to look up the latest pay scales?

All you need to know is, you get paid enough to live like a millionaire during the weekend immediately after getting paid, and not enough to live on for the rest of the month,

Enough to buy thousands of cream eggs.

Stocking up on Pot Noodles, getting Mum to post aid packages and Rentboy activities will see you through to pay day.

In basic training it's like £750-800, and seeing as the only place you can spend it is in the SPAR shop you're usually fine for money at the end of the month unless you've Wonga'd yourself to oblivion before you joined up, or you piss it all away on bets.

After 6 months you go up to £17k or thereabouts and will end up with about £1,000 to play with, not taking into account cars and any other expenses you personally have. I was always fine for money, being a boring c***, but there were plenty of people who embraced the army lifestyle fully and would indeed spend £300-400 on millionaires weekend and by the last week be eating the remnants of ration packs out the bottom of their bergen due to lack of funds.

After your trade training it depends on your rank/posting/trade as to how much you get. When you go off on courses you'll get a bit more, same of if you're posted overseas.

In summary, if you're a single male/female joining up, you have enough money to buy yourself all the gucci kit you like and still chuck some away in savings at the end of the month (providing you don't piss it all away on betting websites).

A good time to mention start saving money in a separate savings account and aim to put away a set amount each month. You'll thank me later.

Yeah, you get briefs on that nowadays and ample opportunities to sign up to savings accounts and set up the direct debits there and then.

Worth taking them up on it!

That's all very well but when does it go in?













Somebody had to say it
I tried so hard not to reply, I tried so hard.

The question was regarding the amount of pay, not when you get paid.

I expect it goes into your bank account on pay day.

As I am not yet a serving member of the armed forces, I wouldn't be able to tell you that.

HR or your Corporal WILL be able to, however.

Mate of mines an aircraft tech, joined at the same time as me and hes on good wedge now (still a remf though), if youve the coin to see you through phase 1 and your trade training you should be sound for money after that point.

What sorta wages was he coming out with on the trade training bud.. if u know again after deductions
Depends what trade mate, different trades give you different pay scales at the end. In the blessed Signals for example, Comms Sys Ops finish trade training and go onto £18k. Myself, being a wobbly head, opened a cereal box one Monday and found a rank slide and a pay check to go with it, so went to my unit on £24k.

After deductions you'd have £1,400 pretty much. Though being married and with a kid I don't see a lot of that.
