Salary survey: Most women miss out
Female accountants are missing out on more than just pay in the equality stakes with their male peers.
The latest salary survey from Accountancy Age/Robert Half Finance and Accounting of more than a thousand accountants showed females are also less likely to enjoy perks like company cars.
About 23% of male respondents drive a company car compared with just 11% of women.
Female accountants will also find it more difficult to compete with their male counterparts? wheels even if they try to finance it by themselves. Women were more than twice as like to be stuck in the lowest income bracket of the profession, earning under £25,000 a year.
Top female CFOs, like Judy Boynton, who recently became the first woman in history to get a seat on the main executive board of Royal Dutch/Shell group, are very much an exception.
