How much money does an accountant make in a year?
The amount of money an accountant makes depends on where the accountant is working (what country, what part of the country), what kind of company he works for and her experience and technical qualifications.
Some can make $120,000 to $260,000, but some make a good deal less.
The amounts vary from country to country and on which designation you hold. However, in Canada for a Chartered Accountant starts at approx. $70,000 a year and, depending on exactly what they choose to do, can make upwards of $400,000 a year. It would be logical to assume that accountants in the US make a similar amount.
