I saw a recent salary stating an average accountants salary was 64K with a 11K bonus.
Most Accountants Salary seem to be around the 45K mark and no bonus. I know it depends on where you live and there would be some regional variation but perhaps no more than 10K between London and other parts of the country ?
There seems a widespread perception that accountants earn a lot of money some do but most don't even when qualified with several years experience behind them. There was quite a lot of media coverage on accountants salary and was even mentioned in some national newspapers.
Would be interested in your views
