German bank account

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. Under JPA are you allowed to have an allotment paid into a German account after returning to the UK.
    I was told before leaving Germany yes, but now I am being told no.
    Any help would be helpful.
  2. In a word No unless:

    c. one other country provided it is for reasons of welfare; for example to an account operated by the parent or guardian of one or more of the Service person’s dependants.

    See JSP 754, Ch 2, Sect 2 for the rules.

  3. I assume your UK bank could make a payment to a german account, but they would probably charge you for the service
  4. Jockster is quite correct, I to did have an allotment from the UK back to Germany whilst serving in the UK
  5. And with a minimum of 10% of pay going into it, on a recent Op Bullitin.
