Insider Tips

The typical annual pay for accounting officers is $60,000. Education, skills, and experience all impact accounting officers' earning potential. Most need a bachelor's degree in order to do well in this role, and the most successful accounting officers hold this position for just a few years before moving on to more advanced positions as accounting managers or accounting supervisors. Professionals who work in finance and insurance typically earn the most, while accounting officers who work in bookkeeping or for government agencies tend to earn the least.
