JPA Help: HDT (Manual) Claim

Discussion in 'Finance, Property, Law' started by P3HO, Aug 31, 2007.

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. HDT (Manual) Virgin

    Tried asking around but answers are few and the place is empty (Friday :) )

    I want to submit my claim before the weekend but need help. The facts are:

    18 trips (to & from work)
    Distance to and from (single journey) is 39.0 miles.

    What can I claim and why does JPA ask for receipted amounts?

    My calculations are:

    18 trips x £16.24 (current rate for 39 miles) = £292.32

    18 x £4.72 (personal contribution rate) = £84.96

    £292.32 - £84.96 = £207.36 TOTAL CLAIM

    Am I right???? Thanks :)
  2. 18 people viewed...still no answer. Doh!!!! Time running out. Gotta go home. No claim for me then. The kids are going hungry for another weekend :) Ah well, they can share my beer tonight instead.
  3. Surely you should claim PCR rate and not ODR ?
  4. Sorry...I really have no clue what you mean :?

    I was going to ask my PC but he is in with the OC he wanted to see him ASAP. So WEF today I am still clueless (tbc).

  5. Sorry - I was talking in abbreviations.

    ODR (official duty rate) is about 40p per mile, as far as I know its only payable when you have to use your own vehicle for an official duty.

    I thought that the PCR (private car rate) was for HDT travel (about 22p a mile)

    I stand to be corrected though !!

    Can you let me know when you get the correct answer
