Guidance

Example of how incidentals can be worked out: A member departs the normal place of duty or residence on Wednesday at 1700 and arrives back at the normal residence at 2000 on the following Friday. Based on a daily incidental component of (for example) $15.90, the member is eligible for incidental expenses for the entire absence, as follows.

1700 Wednesday to 1700 Thursday

$15.90

1700 Thursday to 1700 Friday

$15.90

1700 Friday to 2000 Friday

$15.90

9.5.36 Limits on travelling allowance for accommodation and meals

Guidance

Example: The member is not eligible for breakfast if it was provided as part of an accommodation tariff.

Guidance

Example: A member who travelled by air would not be eligible for an amount for a meal provided during a flight on an aircraft chartered by Defence. However, the member would be eligible for an amount for a meal period during which the member was on an ordinary commercial flight. This is because the meals provided on commercial flights are not of a consistent standard and may not be made available on turbulent flights.

9.5.37 When there is no eligibility for incidentals

Guidance

Example: A member who is not entitled to field allowance may be eligible for incidentals if they meet either of these conditions.

  1. They are part of a survey party but are not on exercise.

  2. They are part of a survey party and are not camping out, but are housed at a Service establishment.

Guidance

Note: In the total workforce system, a member of the Reserves may be described as a member in Service category 2, 3, 4 or 5.

Guidance

Non-example: A member would not be eligible for incidentals in any of these situations.

  1. They travel on a journey that has not been approved as being at Commonwealth expense. For example, as a voluntary exchange of postings with another member.

  2. They break the journey for personal reasons.

  3. They are on recreation leave travel under Part 4 Division 1 of this Chapter.

  4. They are posted to the location where they are already serving on temporary duty, from the date the posting takes effect.
