Good news is on the horizon for accountants and finance professionals' pay packets next year, according to recruitment consultancy Robert Half.
The firm's Salary Guide 2013 shows accountants and finance workers will see an increase in pay and demand for their profession, despite stagnation in other careers.
Auto-enrolment, a move toward global financial reporting and a demand for IFRS specialists for 2015 will see a rise in demand for finance staff, they said.
According to analysis data from the Office for National Statistics by Randstad Financial and Professional, accountants have already seen their pay rise by 7.5% since 2006.
