Rules on having a business as a soldier?

#3
One of my mates asked me the very same question a few weeks ago, and I got some good info from a thread on here. Do a search, and you should find it.

Quite simply:

1. It is done in off duty time

2. You do not connect it to the Army in any way by using the Army to promote it.

3. It does not bring the Army into disrepute or tarnish the reputation e.g. strip club owner

4. You cannot use an Army Address as a place of business. A bit flexible as some army wives are Avon reps and hold avon parties at their own quarter.

Those are it in a nutshell

And, in my day, you needed the CO's permission. Expect it's in Queen's Regs somewhere.

who says you cannot? lots of wives do. all you need is permission from Defence Estates and the local COC, to run a business from your SFA. also ensure that your home & contents insurance will cover you for business use (or get extra business / liability insurance as appropriate).

My local is run by a gunner, he goes off to work each day, driving as he lives out and his wife keeps the place ticking over during the day.

Keep it quiet except to those you trust (those with something to hide). I did a brisk business in hash and dutyfree smokes while in the Forces. Beats delivering pizzas.

Have a word with the chaps. Decide how you are going to nick the ******. Call in the cash from somewhere nobody gives a **** about, like a hedge fund in Canada setup a week last Tuesday, blag the MoD to buggary then spend the rest of your life trying to avoid paying tax on the job.

You could call it... oh, I dunno... QinetiQ?

Wonder if he could find me a nice seldom used 303;we had a few of those in RAF armouries, anything more modern or Ramboesk would be beyond me. I have no idea what I would do with it, but rather like the idea of doing a bit of walting on armed forces day.
