题目: Audit Collusion in China: A Joint Effort of Bureaucrats, Government-Appointed Firm Managers, and Local Auditors 演讲者:LIN Zhen-pin, Kenny, Associate Professor in Accounting, Lingnan University 时间: 2011年4月1日(星期五)3:00—4:30PM 地点: 嘉庚二501 参加者: 对会计研究有兴趣的广大师生 主持人: 阮军老师 论文简介: Positive accounting theory posits that regulations based on accounting numbers create incentives for management to manipulate those numbers. This study examines whether managers of Chinese state-owned enterprises (SOEs) controlled by local governments collude with local auditors to circumvent accounting-based regulations relating to rights offerings and delisting. We infer collusion from an “improvement” in the audit opinions that companies actually received as opposed to the opinions they would have received had they used more reputable auditors. Our results suggest that audit collusion is a joint effort of bureaucrats, SOE managers, and local auditors in China. 讲座人简介: Dr Lin taught in The Chinese University of Hong Kong and Memorial University of Newfoundland before joining Lingnan University in 2000.
