Army wages

Discussion in 'Join the Army - Regular Soldier Recruitment' started by Jensen, May 11, 2008.

Welcome to the Army Rumour Service, ARRSE

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial military website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. Anyone know what they are these days after tax etc? My recruiter gave me a form dated Aug 07 and said "Oh they've changed since this though..." then pencilled in a few random numbers and said "I can't be sure but I think that's right". Anyone know, for new recruits etc monthly wage.
  2. £13,012.80 per annum.
    £1,084.40 per month.
    Approx £750 in your hand per month before you pay for food and accm etc

  3. SO.................its not £750 in the hand then????????
  4. Why can't you go onto the army website, it has all of this information on there.

    This must be a regular member on a windup?
  5. Well my current civvy job im on 12669 per year, and i come out with more than 850 a month after tax
  6. £13,012.80 per annum.
    £1,084.40 per month.
    Approx £750 in your hand per month before you pay for food and accm etc

    yer but that is as a recruit as it says on the army website once you are promoted to private after basic training and trade training i think then you earn up to 15,000+ (higher rank mean more money)
  7. Promoted from what??? :?

  8. It says on the form something such as

    New Entrant £____
    Private Level 1 £____
    Private Level 2 £____
    Private Level 3 £____


  9. You should get paid based on your IQ.

    You already owe the Army 10 grand.

  11. WTF? :roll:
  12. Do you honestly think he will make it past the recruiting stage let alone anything else. If it needs to ask so many stupid questions then I think not. :x Then again this could all just be a WAH.

  13. Thats doesn't mean your rank changes, it's a pay scale!
  14. I'm not even going to entertain these joning up threads any more, they just wind me up!
  15. Assuming you dont have anything like a pension or student loan deductions to take off,

    Just over £13k gives you
    £888.82 a month after tax (before food and shelter is taken off)
