Accounting Services Salary Survey

The Accounting Services Salary Survey reports compensation data for 108 benchmark jobs related to the following activities: auditing of accounting records, designing accounting systems, preparing financial statements, developing budgets, preparing tax returns, processing payrolls, bookkeeping, and billing. The survey includes accountants' offices, payroll processing services, bookkeeping services, and tax return preparation services. The industry survey is available by geographic area (US Region or US National) for $589.

The Accounting Services Salary Survey documents market-based pay data for 13 executive and 95 non-management salary benchmark jobs from up to three databases: digitized public sources, ERI Assessor Series data, and direct participants. The following information is reported for each job title (salary data are shown in means, medians, and percentile cuts):

  • Annual Salary
  • Incentive/Variable Pay
  • Total Direct Annual Compensation
  • Job Description
  • Graph with a Trend Line and Data Points
  • Selected Characteristics of the Occupation (SCO)

Survey information is solicited through traditional mail, email, and online questionnaires. Each data submission is thoroughly screened by our team of experienced researchers prior to inclusion in a survey. No attempt is made to alter incumbent data as reported other than to normalize collected compensation amounts to a common date. Data collection begins October and ends March. Survey results are published annually in July, with an effective data date of March 31 of the given survey year.
