ED Pay, does it still exist?

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. As the title says, does ED pay still exist and who gets it?

    If, say, a chef does a full day and then is required to stay on to cook for a Mess night, does he/she get ED pay and how much would that be?

    Please excuse the alternative user name but this could be a very important subject for some people (who might be being screwed at the moment!).


  2. ED pay does still exist and should be paid by messes etc in the circumstances you outline above. When receiving it you must declare this to the taxman! A form should be signed by each individual on receipt stating that you are aware of this. Rates vary but the average function pays around £50 a go.
