Tax experts have experienced the third largest salary growth in the UK in the last ten years, according to new figures.

A report by the job search engine Adzuna used figures from the Office for National Statistics (ONS) to determine the jobs which saw the highest pay increase in the UK since 2006.

The average salary for a tax expert in 2006 was £32,629 compared to £52,327 in 2016, a 60% increase of almost £20,000. 

The salary trend is in keeping with a report released last month by specialist recruitment consultancy Robert Half which predicted that starting salaries for professionals working in the accounting and finance sectors will rise by an average of 2.9% in 2017.
