RNR Bounty (CofE) Rates for Project Firefly?

Grateful for a steer on what Reference (e.g. BR / JSP) states the Bounty / Certificate of Efficiency payment tiers for the RNR. My understanding is - though I could be wrong - that Project Firefly transfers do not go in at the basic tier; though haven't found that anywhere official. Just want to make sure that my last bounty was paid at the correct rate.

I've checked JSP 752 and BRd 3 (Vol 2), but couldn't find anything specific - possibly I'm looking in the wrong part bit though, they are both ginormous....

I'm pretty sure that trained strength Fireflies transfer in at the full rate, currently around £1,800 per annum, tax free. They also get a twenty-four month exemption from forced mobilisation, but may volunteer if they desire.

I'm not clear why everyone isn't doing it, frankly.

E2A: If you have access to Defence Connect have a look here;
RNTM 248/14
Project FIREFLY (Seamless Transfer From Regular Service to the Maritime Reserves)
Reference: 2014DIN01-130 Entry into the Maritime Reserves (MR) for all Tri-Service Serving Personnel.

Not new, but still in force, as far as I can tell.

Thanks really appreciate your reply, the RNTM you specify is the relevant document. Additionally 2015DIN01-213 also applies.

Unfortunately neither of them are definitive on the subject - both have wording along the lines of "an annual bounty of up to £x" without specifying exactly which tier relates to Firefly transfers.

I suspect my best bet is to ask the Firefly team directly. Good of you to help though. If I do get a concrete answer, I'll post back.
