High Salaries for Graduates Emphasise the Value of Accounting Industry, says Braant Tuesday 3 March 2015 PDF Print many young people may be disheartened by the fact that university fees have tripled in recent years, placing them in fear of looming debts The reaction comes following a report in City AM detailing the predicted salaries of entry-level accountants, underlining the value that top-level accountancy and bookkeeping has in today’s business society. The report focuses on the fact many young people may be disheartened by the fact that university fees have tripled in recent years, placing them in fear of looming debts throughout their future. City AM state that, along with law and finance, accounting provides the best opportunity for graduates to secure well-paid positions in a sector that has not lost its sense of prosperity despite the economic downturn of 2008. Through numerous positions being made available by the top firms in the country, the average starting salary in accountancy is estimated to be around £30,000 per year. These predicted figures continue the increase started in 2014 following four years of little movement as many industries reassessed their options during the recession.
