In financial year 2021-22, the workforce and activity costs to maintain the units within 1st (United Kingdom) Division and 3rd (United Kingdom) Division at routine levels of readiness, and at full strength, are as follows:

1st (UK) Division costs c £1.277 billion p.a.

3rd (UK) Division costs c £1.307 billion p.a.

These figures are inclusive of pay and operating costs (fuel, rations, travel and ammunition) however, due to the way in which the Army measures and forecasts its spend, it has not been possible to include infrastructure, utilities and equipment running costs at divisional level.
