10.3% salary hike disappoints accountants Says Marks Sattin

- Average accountancy salaries rose 10.3% in the last 12 months, below the 13.5% increase expected

-               Bonuses in 2011 were 17%, pushing average total remuneration to &pound70,300

-               70% of accountants feel secure in their jobs, compared to just over half last year

-               More than half of accountants plan to change role this year

Accountants received a salary boost of 10.3% last year – but this failed to meet their expectations.

According to research from accountancy and financial services recruiter Marks Sattin, UK accountants hoped for a 13.5% increase in salary last year, but have had to accept pay growth of just over 10% - an increase almost seven times larger than the national average. Basic pay for accountants has risen to an average &pound59,900 per annum, from &pound54,300 last year.

Despite receiving less than expected, accountants’ optimism has grown in 2012 as they expect their pay to increase by 14.2%. If this prediction is correct, accountants will receive an average salary of &pound68,400 in 2013.

The news follows the announcement by KPMG and Deloitte that profits per partner fell in 2011, while turnover rose in all the Big 4 firms. The highest growth in revenues was seen by KPMG, whose sales grew 13% in 2010 – 2011. Deloitte and Ernst & Young saw turnover rises of 7% and 7.7% respectively.

Dave Way, managing director of Marks Sattin said: “Accountants are disappointed with the growth in their salaries this year, but in most industries a 10% increase would mean party hats and champagne. It shows how good the prospects currently are for accountants that a raise far in excess of the national average is less than had they had hoped for.

“Accounting professionals are currently benefitting from not only growth in their sector – evidenced by the growing turnover of all the Big 4. They are also enjoying a redistribution of wealth by firms. During the credit crisis, firms sought to protect their bottom lines with tough cuts to remuneration and headcount. The reverse is now the case as, despite the UK slipping marginally into recession, firms are returning to growth. The top employers are competing for a finite supply of talent to build-up growing teams and this means salaries are being pushed upward at a very healthy rate”.
