TAX FREE BONUS

If you meet your minimum training commitment (usually 19 or 27 days), and also pass your Military Training Tests (once a year), you'll get a tax free bonus payment on top of your pay.

This is based on your level of commitment, and varies from £440 in year 1 to £1,742 in year 5.

JOINING INCENTIVES

When you join the Army Reserve, you could earn extra payments on top of your tax free bonus and pay:
  • £300 on being accepted on to training
  • £1,000 on completion of initial (Phase 1) training
  • £1,000 on completion of trade (Phase 2) training

YOU'LL ALSO GET...

  • Earn military and civilian qualifications
  • Opportunities to travel
  • Take part in sport and adventurous training

If you're joining the Army Reserve as an ex-regular, you could also benefit from the rejoiners financial incentive.

THE BEST OF BOTH WORLDS

The Army will always respect that for a Reservist, their family life, and civilian jobs should always come first. This means that you'll never be put under pressure to spend all of your spare time with the Army. You can be as flexible as you like, knowing that you'll be rewarded for the time that you give.

DID YOU KNOW?

The Army supports sports for Reservists, and you can play team sports like football, rugby and hockey, or get involved in sports like orienteering, target shooting, skiing or polo.
