Pay into your hand? Private Soldier

Discussion in 'Army Pay, Claims & JPA' started by thebatoneffect, Mar 13, 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. In the process of applying - I know the pay scale but am from the south of Ireland so I dont know what the tax rates etc are

    I want to know what a soldier would get into their hand after tax?
    Do they subtract money for accommodation and food?
    After 4 years service are you entitled to a partial pension?
  2. Im not a clerk, but i can tell you this much. Sorry if its not enough.

    Your pay statement will show you what your daily pay is, and then they will take food, accomodation, tax, national insurance (if you guys pay that) plus any other things out (CILCOT, reg subs, ADT) etc before acrediting your bank account. What goes into your account is yours, all deductions are taken off before your bank payment.

    Couldnt tell you what the tax rates are for you mate, if their anything like British tax, expect to be stumped!

    As a guide though, i went through training in 2002 and was getting 600 quid a month, im now on 1150 a month after tax, accom, food etc etc

    Hope that helps!
  3. You are eligiable for a Preserved Pension, payable at age 60, after 2 reconable years service.
