Stupid question — please be delicate, I’m new. I just started my first freelance gig with an agency and I’m in the system as a temporary/contract employee and I’ve filled out a weekly timesheet.

I've been out of accounting for about 2 years because I decided to move to another country for life experiences. I will be moving back mid 2022 with my fiance and will go back to Audit most likely. My firm said they would gladly take me back when I left. If i was making 65k as a senior 2 years ago is it reasonable to ask for 72k and a 10k signing bonus even with a 2 year break? Would it be more reasonable if I went to a different firm instead? How much do you think is reasonable?
