redsquirrel said:TA can only ever be taxed as a second job, ie at Basic Rate (BR) except on mobilisation, etc, where you effectively become part of the regular army. If you only earn from TA (drill nights and W/E training) in any given tax year, you may not use all your personal allowances and might be entitled to a tax rebate.

ZBM2 said:HMRC may now impose a D0 tax code rather than BR on TA earnings - as they have just done with me - which means that they have instructed MoD/Jpac to deduct take tax at 40% rather than at base rate. So anyone who is on 40% already and regularly does a tax return with TA employment on an additional sheet might have it treated that way rather through normal tax coding on main salary.
