When do you start getting paid ? after the start of the bmq?

We normally get paid on the 15th and final day of every month. The paperwork will unlikely be done for the first pay period after you head to BMQ, but the following one possibly. I.e. if you left on Sept 5 for basic, you would likely get your first pay on September 30, or on October 15th if there was issues.
You will normally start earning money the day you start travelling to BMQ. Between swearing in and departure you will be on leave without pay.

If you are in the Reserve you should get paid for any days you come in for administration (drawing uniforms, etc) after you have been sworn in.

Actual money in your pocket will depend on how fast your pay get arranged. See lankylad's explanation.
