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. This perilously close to a wah, so without hesitation ill quickly ask...

    Is it true that £760 is taken out of your pay during basic as mentioned here

    another bit of arrse

    Only asking here again it seems to have lots of views an not many posts in that section. An as 760 sheets is alot money, personally id like to know for sure.

    Thanks.
     
  2. You have misread it. He said your monthly salary after deductions should be £760 cash in hand.

    I have not got the foggiest idea if this is true or not.
     
  3. Hang about, so i have, thanks for pointing that out l_p.

    So that would be, take home after tax of £9120 a year, sorta sounds about right i suppose.
     
  4. you wont get a full weeks pay in your hand whilst in training some will be kept behind and given in credits when you go on leave etc. That bit was true at least a while ago you got it weekly until a certain stage of training when it went to monthly used to be at phase 2 at which time you will have been in the system for a while
     
  5. Just remember that the CO and the RSM will want their cut, too!

    25% each, IIRC. :twisted:

    It's either that or....
