How much different countries pay their soldiers?

Hello,
It's rude to ask a man about his salary and woman her age. I do both, so:
How much do you earn (active duty soldiers pls) per month, after taxes - NET income, incl. all bonuses allowances etc., I mean what lands on your bank account, total and clean?
I serve as a captain, Polish, para duty, and get about 2000 pounds a month - including everything and taxed. Anyone else? Thx!
 
I never got money, I was paid in Smarties.
 
This is exactly what I do not want to. I have no idea about foreign tax system, bonus system etc., and no motivation to read all of that. I just ask for concrete example. Is it such a secret?

Do you have Pay as you dine? Do you have to pay for meals, accommodation, and the likes?

As a Captain, its a bit low - should be nearer the £3k mark, if UK
 
I am not serving, been out 21 years in fact. But looking up the current equivalent of my trade (Communications Systems Engineer), rank Sgt, with three years in rank, it would be £39,071. I was married and lived out, so no housing charges, food and accomodation etc. Pension is already accounted for in the salary. I did not receive any additonal pay (SF, Para, aircrew, diver etc).

Plugging that number into: The Salary Calculator - Take-Home tax calculator, I get a monthly net salary of £2519.

For comparison, a captain with three years in rank would be £45,552 gross, and £2886 monthly take home, although I don’t believe that would include parachute pay of a couple pounds a day.
 
Married or single? living in the mess, SLA, MQ? Do you want PAYD and housing charges deducted? Also Mess Bills? As a Captain there will be charges for uniform items not provided at public expense.

In UK certain things are also tax deductibe. So soldier A and soldier B can have different net income. particularly if they receive trade pay or as in your example para pay.

Why make it so complicated? There is a table of what YOU earn, and THEN retrospectively apply all that other personal crap?

@Potatolander are you kgb

That is why i quoted the gross pay scales as there are so many variables.

For a take home of £2000 a month, i suspect a Cpl could take home more.

Yep.
 
I was really amazed. Talking to a Rumanian SNCO, been in the Army since 1988, first as a conscript. He was paid .. nothing . Got a uniform a AK and a Bed.


Not a penny, family had to pay for extra food, ciggys and beer.

Even now he was on about 1200 € a month.
 
The US tables of pay. A Captain is an O3.


Paratroopers receive an extra $150 monthly.

If HALO qualified and in a job requiring the skill an extra $225 monthly.

US military also receive re-enlistment bonuses. These are individually negotiated, usually every four years. If you are good, or have a special skill in short supply you will get offered big $. Examples I was given: A mechanic type would be offered around $8,000 to $12,000. Someone with advanced language skills in Chinese could be offered in excess of $100,000.
