LAPTOPS - Are there allowances for them??

Discussion in 'Finance, Property, Law' started by goatbagthedruid, May 2, 2005.

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. Sun today states the half Offrs and SNCOs have to buy their own laptops.

    Believe that there is an allowance for this - am I correct?? :?

    No
     
  3. Stick to what you're best at C_C, and check out Restaurants. Don't think you know the Army Pay System and all work allowances like the back of your hand. If you do, then move to the AGC. :evil:

    Now, any Pay personnel out there who know what they are talking about??

    Rather than an allowance, the way to go about this would be to claim the cost back against tax as a business expenditure apparently. Unfortunately when you try to go down this road, you are told that because the army has provided an IT suite (always at the other side of the regiment!) for your use, it is not a legitimate expenditure...

    Have gone down this route myself many, many times!
