Am I being underpaid
I wonder if I could get some other people's opinion: I started at the company I work for a year ago and this was my first accountancy related role. In January there was a very sudden change of personnel and I was asked to take over the role which is Accounts Payable and the company's payroll. In March I completed AAT and given a pay increase. In May I had a review in which my boss said he was so impressed with my work and that I'm along way above what he'd expected. We discussed targets for the next year and also particular projects he wanted me to see to and he also talked about how he wants me to take on some of his side of things. This is all great however, 4 months later and I've already met all my targets and completed the projects he wanted me to work on. Recently however, someone new has started on a temp contract who isn't capable and I have been asked to help him out and take on some of the work he should be doing, in particular vat returns. This person is on more than myself salary wise. I am currently on £21,600, I'm in the South East. From what I've described above what are people's opinions? Is this an average salary? I've looked on the internet and found very differing results, but all of which are above what I'm currently on.
