Pay by Experience Level for Bookkeeper

Median of all compensation (including tips, bonus, and overtime) by years of experience.


Bookkeepers with Customer Service skills with more experience do not necessarily bring home bigger paychecks. In fact, experience in this field tends to impact compensation minimally. Those in the early stages of their career can expect to make around $30K; however, individuals with five to 10 years of experience bring in $35K on average — a distinctly larger sum. Bookkeepers with Customer Service skills with one to two decades of relevant experience report an average salary of approximately $38K. More than 20 years of experience mean a somewhat bigger median paycheck of $39K, but it's not much more than what less experienced people make.
