Called to account.

THE pay gap between men and women chartered accountants has narrowed among younger practitioners, according to a salary survey by the Institute of Chartered Accountants in England and Wales.

Although the average basic salary for ICAEW chartered accountants working in business has remained static - reflecting the current economic climate - the pay gap is narrowing for women under 30, said the survey by ICAEW and recruitment firm Stott and May.

The average basic salary stood at PS92,600 compared with PS92,100 in 2012.

Bonuses also remained stable with an average bonus of PS21,300 against PS21.2k the previous year. The survey was based on ICAEW members in businesses across the UK and globally.

The average basic salary for female accountants under 30 is now 97% of their male counterparts, compared to 92% the year before. ICAEW director Sharron Gunn said: "The closure of the gender pay gap is a positive step."
