Does anyone know of the baggage allowance/ insurance claim. Can you claim it each way on a journey (by air), does it only apply for air freight? Can it be caimed on RAF flights? How long can it be back dated? Potentially a nice little earner!!!
I recently claimed for insurance for my baggage (comfort box) to cover transit to/from Afghan. Not sure of the detail (there's a JSP somewhere) but I'm pretty sure its connected with OWP and does not apply to all/any baggage.
Fazzy, don't claim anything until you have explained the moves to your HR Staff and they have told you which qualify.
Not doing that or taking some mates advice would be a nice little earner of ........jail time.
There also seems to be some giant rumour going round about claiming IE back for courses done long ago. Firstly IE only came in in Apr 07 and secondly you have to ask the original unit's budget manager's permission and prove that you have not claimed it before (which is mega difficult).
CGS has just put out his fraud instructions and he appears to keen to have a crack down on random claiming. Cave Claimor!
I only say nice little earner as i have been away 3 times this year and havent claimed owt! I was thinking it was around 40 quid per flight or journey? I am not in any way thinking of fraud its just....well... why doesnt someone sit you down and go throug all the things you are entitled too! why that would be stupid!!!
I believe it was Miscellaneous Incidental Expenditure, then Personal Incidental Expenditure (or the other way around) before it became just IE. It's Â£5 a day (per overnight) in the UK and Â£10 overseas. Not payable on ops or exercise.
