Tariff categories of military personnel

Reading time: 4 min.

The definition of the concept of "tariff classes of military personnel", as well as the description of their full list, is provided for by the Cabinet of Ministers Resolution №704 of 08.30.2017 "On the financial support of military personnel, members of the rank and file and some other persons". By the way, those readers who follow our updates probably had time to notice that the lawyers of the Prikhodko&Partners law firm team, when covering the topic of financial support for the military, often refer to the said Resolution. Indeed, it is one of the leading by-laws in this matter.

What is important to know about the legal regulation of tariff categories?

Government Resolution №704 dated August 30, 2017 defines tariff categories not only for the military, but also for representatives of other law enforcement agencies. For example, among them are the Security Service of Ukraine, the State Emergency Service, the State Security Service, and the National State University. This list is incomplete, because the content of the document is much broader.


As for the parts that make up monetary support, they include:

  • salary;
  • salary by military or special rank;
  • monthly salary increases, bonuses, bonuses, allowances and other rewards that are permanent;
  • one-time additional types of cash support.

It is very important to understand the role of the correct definition of the tariff class. The amount of the official salary depends on him. And this salary, according to the chain principle, affects all other parts of monetary support. Therefore, if the tariff category is incorrectly defined, it is important to make efforts to resolve this issue.

How is it measured in numbers and amounts?

Clause 4 of the aforementioned Resolution appeals to the fact that official salaries and salaries for military or special ranks should be calculated according to the following principle: the amount of 1,762 hryvnias. multiplied by the corresponding tariff coefficient.

At first glance, it may seem that there is nothing complicated in such calculations, because their principle is laid out clearly enough. But in fact, the Regulation itself is quite voluminous.

It can be difficult to search for the necessary information without having the skills of independent analysis of the regulatory and legal framework. After all, such information is contained in various appendices to the Resolution - namely, in appendices 1, 12, 13 and 14.

In order not to waste a lot of time and effort, you can seek legal support from specialists who know about this issue and specialize in appropriate legal support for such client requests. They work in the team of the "Prikhodko&Partners" law office and have sufficient experience.
