The New Jersey Society of CPAs has released an accounting compensation survey to help accounting firms determine compensation of employees and partners.

The 2012 NJSCPA Compensation & Benefits Survey of Public Accounting Firms in New Jersey covers salary, incentive plans, health insurance, paid time off and more. The study breaks down results from entry-level staff up through the partner level, as well as by the northern, central and southern regions of the Garden State – including the New York City and Philadelphia metropolitan areas.

“It’s very helpful to have a comprehensive salary survey that is specifically dedicated to public accountants in the state of New Jersey,” says WithumSmith+Brown director of human resources Joan Kampo in a statement. “New Jersey may be small geographically, but we have many accounting firms of all different sizes located throughout the state. The NJSCPA’s Compensation and Benefits Survey did a nice job of capturing not only the differences in benefits and compensation based on firm size, but also on geographical location,”

The study was performed in conjunction with Merces Consulting. A total of 79 firms participated in the survey, which ran from December 2011 through February 2012.
