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. WTF, just looked on Armynet pay statement, and my pay has gone down this month, meaning Ill get £200 less after tax, pay is calculated yearly / 12 months now, so why the change now ? even so has SDR reduced pay ?

    ..or some cock up JPA can answer for ......when I back off leave :pissedoff:
     
  2. do you get LOA?

    You'll hate Jan when tax goes to 20% then
     
  3. i thought it was only VAT?
     
  4. it is only VAT thats going up and as we already pay 20% on wages unless you earn 37401 or more a year then you pay 40% on every penny over that amount
     

  5. That's just about it.

    Firstly everyone gets their tax-free allowance...

    Then you pay basic rate tax on the first bit., up to a threshold ammount...

    Then you pay the 40% rate on the next bit.

    Averaged out through the year according to sets of tables.

    More info about current rates and thresholds can be found here: HM Revenue & Customs: Income Tax allowances on the official tax collector (thieving bastards!) website.
