The Swiss – best paid accountants

If you became an accountant for the money then you need to head to Switzerland.

New research from and GlassDoor has found that with an average annual salary of £83,248 Swiss accountants make 26% more than the average salary in the country (£66,196).

In second place is Denmark, where accountants make on average around £60,029 a year.

The figures suggest Irish accountants’ average pay also comes in ahead of UK accountants! In Ireland accountants earn on average £40,832, compared the UK average of just £35,000 (which seems a bit low to us).

Bottom of the salary table is Croatian accountants who earned just £6,563 a year. That’s just below Russian accountants on £6,643.
