  1. Hello,

    Although ive received the pay list. How much do i come out with at phase 1 training and then when phase 1 and 2 is over. When all taxes etc have been taken off.

  2. Once you start getting paid into your bank account in Phase 1 - you get about £700-750 after tax and deductions, then in IIRC, Phase 2 you'll get about £890-1000 after tax and deductions as you'll be paid in Phase 2 as a level 1 Pte.
  3. Thanks alot bradders.

    Although i was told that with tax taken off i would end up with about £500 a month....Or have i accumulated false information?
  4. That is possible if the Army don't get a P45 from your old job, or you've never worked before and are put on the emergency tax code...
  5. Never worked b4 im only 16 Ive done voluntary and paper round haha
