    I've just received a late invite to interview for a role in financial services assurance with one of the big 4 and I am wondering a couple of things re qualification and salary:

    1) What's the basic salary typically like for an assurance/audit FSA role?

    2) What's the bonus/salary progression like after passing an ICAS exam?

    Any help is super appreciated!

    Starting salaries range from £20k in regions to £28k in London. Typically a small increase at end of 1st year but a decent increase between 2nd and 3rd year and the same again when you qualify at end of 3rd year. Firm wide bonuses typically only available from end of 2nd year.

    Bonuses/salary increases for exam passes generally disappeared several years ago.

    In relation to your Business Law question in the closed thread: cost of the course and exam is about £500 plus your salary for about 5-6 days. Exemptions make no difference to bonuses/salaries.
