Payments for pre-approved travel and meal expenses

An eligible officer of cadets or instructor of cadets in the ADF Cadets may seek payments in relation to these expenses at the same rate as a member of the ADF with the same rank and in the same circumstances as the person.

 

 

For the purpose of calculating the daily amount, 6 or more hours on any day counts as a full day.  Between 2 and 6 hours on any day counts as a part day.  Each part day is paid at half the daily rate.  Less than 2 hours on any day does not receive a daily amount.  

ADF members on continuous full time service who participate in a cadet activity will not be entitled to any payments under this determination unless they are accepted as officers of cadets or instructors of cadets and are participating in a cadet activity in that capacity. A member of the ADF Reserves who is in receipt of Reserve pay for participating in a cadet activity will not be entitled to any payments under this determination. 

Note: Defence is required to withhold an amount for taxation purposes from the payments made to officers of cadets and instructors of cadets in accordance with tax ruling of 23 December 2014.
