CalCPA 2021 Salary Survey – Published June 23


Four years ago, in conjunction with the California Society of CPAs (CalCPA), Premier Financial Search launched an annual, comprehensive survey to evaluate compensation at all firm levels within the state.

CalCPA operates as the largest body of professional accountants in the state of California. As such, the CalCPA foundation data for salary numbers is highly-respected and provides valuable insight.

The data is in and the CalCPA 2021 Salary Survey is scheduled to be published this month. More than 35 firms located throughout California participate. These range in size from $2mm in revenue to $75mm. The data derived is critically relevant to ambitious firms and can offer up meaningful insight for talent attraction and the future of your firm – no matter your geographic location.

A review of this year’s findings is scheduled to be presented to CalCPA on Wednesday, June 23 at 12:00 p.m. PST.  Complimentary registration is open and every accounting firm leader is encouraged to attend.
