When accounting goes unaccounted for
Tis the season for Robert Half either inflating or popping your balloon when it comes to projected starting salaries in public accounting for the coming year.
The staffing and recruiting giant released its 2023 Accounting & Finance Salary Guide on Monday, which includes starting salary expectations for jobs in 35 categories, including public accounting. In the public accounting category, Robert Half provided 2023 starting salary projections for four roles in tax services and four roles in audit and assurance services.
Like in previous years, Bob breaks down starting pay ranges by percentile, based on a candidate’s experience. For 2023, there are three salary percentiles with the following descriptions:
So without further ado, here are the starting salary projections in public accounting for 2023. Then we’ll take a look at how these projections compare to Robert Half’s starting salary predictions for 2022:
Robert Half expected starting salaries for these eight positions to increase between only 1.4% and 2.6% for 2022. For 2023, starting pay for these eight roles is expected to increase between 2.3% and 5.8%. Better than 2022 but still underwhelming, right?
Here again are the starting salaries for each of the eight public accounting roles in the 2023 salary guide, listed by percentile, compared with 2022’s starting salary projections from Robert Half (2022 -> 2023) so we can see how big the pay increases are expected to be by position and by percentile (in parenthesis):
