SINGAPORE - If Mr Uantchern Loh had his way, first-year accountants would be earning at least $4,000 monthly.

This would be benchmarked against other professions, like in the law and medical sectors, the chief executive of the Singapore Accountancy Commission (SAC) told The Straits Times on Thursday.

Such issues as pay and manpower needs are currently being studied by the Accountancy Sector Research Centre (ASRC), the research arm of the SAC.

The ASRC is just one of a slew of milestones the SAC has achieved since it was formed in April last year to raise the profile of the sector.
