CPA Compensation

Earning the CPA designation is a significant accomplishment.  It can also be a financially rewarding accomplishment.  According to the 2015 CPA  Profession Compensation Study Report, the mean annual compensation for a CPA in 2014 was $151,000 (with the median compensation being $108,000).  Compensation amounts do vary based on geographic and demographic factors.  For instance, Alberta reported the highest average annual compensation of any province in 2014, with a mean compensation of $184,000.
