  • The Effect of Directors’ and Officers’ Insurance on Audit Fees: The
           Case of an Emerging Economy
    • First page: 174
      Abstract: Asian Review of Accounting, Volume 25, Issue 2, May 2017.
      Purpose The study examines the role of D&O insurance in audit pricing in Taiwan, an emerging market in which auditors face negligible litigation risk and intense competition. Design/methodology/approach It examines the association between audit fees and D&O insurance coverage. Findings Results indicate that audit fees are higher for clients with higher D&O coverage after controlling for other determinants. Further analysis shows that auditors charge additional audit fees for clients whose insurer is foreign-owned. Originality/value Overall, the study provides evidence that financial misstatement risks induced by D&O insurance is one of contributing audit risk factors in an emerging economy context.

  • Audit quality and audit report lag: Case of Indonesian listed companies
    • First page: 191
      Abstract: Asian Review of Accounting, Volume 25, Issue 2, May 2017.
      Purpose This study empirically examines the relation between two dimensions of auditor quality, namely auditor industry specialization and auditor reputation and the audit report lag. Design/methodology/approach The data collection focuses on companies listed on the Indonesia Stock Exchange (IDX) for the financial year of 2010 and 2011. To ensure data homogeneity and reduce industry bias, this study focuses solely on manufacturing companies identified by the Indonesian Capital Market Directory (ICMD). Findings This study finds a negative and significant association between industry specialist auditors and audit report timeliness. Companies audited by auditor industry specialists have shorter audit delays. We also find evidence that Big 4 auditors perform significantly faster audit work than their non-Big 4 counterparts. In addition, this study reports a statistically and significant relationship between auditing complexity, companies’ profitability, auditors’ business risk and industry classification and audit report lag. The results show that firms with a large number of subsidiaries and firms experiencing poorer financial performance are found to be associated with longer reporting delays. Moreover, audit report timeliness is found to be faster for companies in the low profile industry sector and owned by family members. Research limitations/implications Similar to other empirical investigations, our study is not without certain caveats. First, the period of audit report lag in this study reflects the audit work from the year-end to the audit report date. We do not consider audit work conducted outside this period in the analysis. Second, there are numerous control variables and although we have attempted to capture those variables to maintain the integrity of our research there are likely other excluded variables that may be important in explaining audit report timeliness. Finally, there are other factors, for example, administrative approval process with the audit firm home office, which can affect audit report lags but have not been included in the model analysis. Future studies can seek to focus on refinements to the proxy measures for dependent and experimental variables. Practical implications Insights drawn from this study may be of assistance to policy makers as they consider the costs and benefits associated with varying levels of audit market concentration as well as providing a snapshot of the level of non-compliance on audit timeliness in Indonesia. Originality/value This study provides further empirical evidence on the relation between auditor quality and audit report lag using data from a different domestic setting. This study also enriches the auditor quality literature by employing industry specialist and Big 4 auditors as a predictor for the timeliness of audit reports.

  • Debiasing the Halo Effect in Audit Decision: Evidence from Experimental
           Study
    • First page: 211
      Abstract: Asian Review of Accounting, Volume 25, Issue 2, May 2017.
      Purpose This research aimed to test the existence of the halo effect caused by the presentation of information scope (holistic/specific), which can eventually lead to an inaccurate risk assessment of material misstatement. Empirical evidence is provided to demonstrate that methods of knowledge acquisition (explanatory feedback and self-explanation) are able to mitigate the halo effect. Design/methodology/approach This study used an experimental research, which focused on control and experimental groups in order to determine if the halo effect caused by the information scope (holistic/specific) can be mitigated via the explanatory feedback or self-explanation method. Findings It was found that auditors who received information from the holistic scope tend to experience the halo effect and eventually, their risk assessments of material misstatement also became less accurate when compared to auditors who received information from the specific scope. The explanatory-feedback was found to be effective in mitigating the halo effect. However, the self-explanation knowledge acquisition method was not reliable in mitigating the halo effect. Research limitations/implications This research use self-explanation with manual technique, in practice, most of auditor use audit tools based on computer. Experimental setting with computer to self-explanation can not held because there is limitation of seminar setting. This research used individual decision; in practice most of audit decision with discussion in audit team. Practical implications CPA firms can use explanatory feedback, which comes in the form of managers’ review as a form of knowledge acquisition method as a mitigation strategy for the halo effect. Originality/value The outcome of this paper was derived from the first accounting study that relied on learning methods as a mitigation strategy for the halo effect. In other words, this study used explanatory feedback and self-explanation as methods to test the halo effect. Previous literature on mitigating the halo effect had used audit experiences, implying that CPA firms’ intervention was unnecessary. Moreover, such study periods had been much longer, thereby, deteriorating the effectiveness of the research. Previous studies had only used the learning method to increase human capital quality and this was not related to any method as a measn to mitigate individual bias, for example, the halo effect, and an issue that was covered by this study

  • Management Accounting Change and the Implementation of GFMIS: a Jordanian
           Case Study
    • First page: 242
      Abstract: Asian Review of Accounting, Volume 25, Issue 2, May 2017.
      Purpose This paper aims to explain the processes of management accounting change in the Jordanian Customs Organization (JCO) within its social context following public sector reforms. It focuses on the regulative way in which a new accounting system of government financial management information system (GFMIS) was implemented throughout three levels of an institutional framework. Design/methodology/approach The paper uses an interpretive case study in which the GFMIS was imposed by the government. It draws on a framework that comprises three institutional approaches: old institutional economics (OIE); new institutional sociology (NIS); and power mobilization. Findings In the JCO case, the GFMIS contributed effectively to the development of a comprehensive approach to the preparation of the budget while it works to facilitate the estimated process of expenditures and revenues. The study recognizes that the implementation of GFMIS may have emerged primarily as a response to external political and economic pressures. The management accounting change was carried out in the “from-top-to-bottom” level of institutional analysis, which confirms the “path-dependent” and evolutionary nature of the change. It concludes that the evolutionary management accounting change in the JCO case study was not only a decorative innovation in management accounting, but was also represented in the working practices. It has produced comprehensive and timely information about strategic planning, chart of accounts and classification of assets, liabilities, and revenues and expenses at all levels of management and programs. The study also confirms that management accounting is not a static phenomenon but one that changes over time to reflect new systems and practices. Research limitations/implications The need for having an integrated GFMIS in our case arises from two key dimensions: 1) increasing pressures from the IMF to improve fiscal management and reporting, and 2) the government needs to respond to the demand of better information disclosure. GFMIS has provided an integrated solution for public financial management through the automation of the entire life cycle of budget preparation, budget execution, and financial reporting. The system operates across all budget organizations to ensure transparency and accountability in all public resources transactions, including allocation, use, and monitoring. Hence, it has important implications for policy decision makers through linking all budget organizations, for the purposes of supporting the process of decision making in an informed manner. The study has important implications for the ways in which change dynamics can emerge, diffuse, and implement at three levels of institutional analysis. It also explains the interaction between the external origins and internal accounts, which identified that GFMIS is both shaped by, and is shaping, wider socio-economic and political processes. Originality/value This study fills a gap in the literature, as it explains the processes of management accounting change associated with the introduction of GFMIS in the Jordanian Customs Organization within its social context. It recognizes the institutional pressures that affected the emergence and diffusion of GFMIS and how they interacted through three levels of institutional analysis.

  • Investment Decisions and Bank Loan Contracting
    • First page: 262
      Abstract: Asian Review of Accounting, Volume 25, Issue 2, May 2017.
      Purpose This study examines how a firm’s investment behavior relates to its subsequent bank loan contracting. Design/methodology/approach Using a sample of U.S. firms during 1992–2011, we examine the association between overinvestment (underinvestment) and three characteristics of bank loan contracts: loan spread, collateral requirement, and loan maturity. Findings We find that overinvesting firms obtain loans with higher loan spreads. Additional tests show that the effect of overinvestment on loan spreads is generally more pronounced in firms with lower reputation, weaker shareholder rights, and lower institutional ownership. The effect of overinvestment on collateral requirement is mixed, and investment efficiency has no significant relation to loan maturity. Research limitations/implications Our results are subject to the following caveats. First, while our study provides empirical evidence that investment efficiency affects bank loan contracting terms, especially the cost of bank loans, the underlying theory is not well-developed. We leave it up to future research to provide a theoretical framework to clearly distinguish between the cash flow and credit risk effects of past investment behavior from those of existing agency conflicts. Second, due to data availability, our sample size is small, especially when we control for corporate governance measured by G-index and institutional ownership. Practical implications Our finding that overinvestment is costly to corporations suggests that managers should consider the potential trade-offs from such investment decisions carefully. Our evidence also alerts shareholders and board members to the importance of monitoring management investment decisions. In addition, we find that corporate governance moderates the relationship between investment decisions and cost of bank loans, suggesting that it would be beneficial to design effective governance mechanisms to prevent management from empire building and motivate managers to pursue efficient investment strategies. Originality/value First, our findings enhance understanding of the potential economic consequences of overinvestment decisions in the context of a firm’s private debt contracting. Our evidence suggests that lenders perceive higher credit risk from overinvestment than from underinvestment, likely because firms squander cash in the current period by investing in (negative NPV) projects that are likely to result in future cash flow problems. Second, our study contributes to the literature on the determinants of bank loans by identifying an observable empirical proxy for uncertainty in future cash flows that increases credit risk.

  • Accounting Conservatism, Corporate Governance and Political Connections
    • First page: 288
      Abstract: Asian Review of Accounting, Volume 25, Issue 2, May 2017.
      Purpose This study examines the relationship between accounting conservatism, corporate governance and political connection in listed firms in Malaysia where political influence plays a significant role in the capital market and in many business dealings Design/methodology/approach By utilizing 824 firm-year observations comprising large listed companies over a period of four years from 2004, this study uses ordinary least squares (OLS) regression models to investigate the relationship between accounting conservatism, corporate governance and political connections in Malaysia. Multiple measures of conservatism developed by Basu (1997) and Khan and Watts (2009) are employed Findings The results show evidence of accounting conservatism (bad news being recognized earlier than good news) in Malaysia. Further, the results reveal that better corporate governance structure in terms of board independence is positively associated with accounting conservatism while management ownership is negatively associated with it. However, political connection has a negative moderating effect on the positive relationship between accounting conservatism and board independence. The results also suggest political connections has a positive association with firm’s future performance. Originality/value This study is the first in investigating the effect of political connections on accounting conservatism in Malaysian context and how political connections negatively affect the monitoring role of the corporate boards . By directly measuring political connection and controlling for various corporate governance mechanisms and firm specific attributes, this study contributes to enhancing our understanding of the political influence in financial reporting quality and firm performance in an emerging market setting.

  • The Processes of Accounting Changes as Emerging from Public and Fiscal
           Reforms: An Interpretive Study
    • First page: 2
      Abstract: Asian Review of Accounting, Volume 25, Issue 1, February 2017.
      Purpose The study aims to explain the emergence processes of accounting change in the Jordanian Ministry of Finance as well as the Jordanian public sector within its socio-economic contexts, as brought about by public and fiscal reforms. The study explains the ways in which accounting change dynamics can emerge on the basis of interaction between ‘external’ origins and ‘internal’ accounts; which identifies that accounting is both shaped by, and shaping, wider socio-economic and political processes. Design/methodology/approach The paper uses an interpretive case study approach. The study adopts institutional and structuration theory as a theoretical lens and uses triangulation in data collection, including interviews, observations, and documents and archival records. Findings The paper concludes that the new budgeting systems together with the Results Based Management emerged as a result of interaction between ‘external’ origins and ‘internal’ accounts. It also highlights the interaction between these levels from one side, and the accounting and organizational change from the other side. The study confirms that factors other than economic may also play an influential role in the emergence of accounting change. It also concludes that there is a radical change of accounting systems in the case study (Ministry of Finance), which is not only a cosmetic change in accounting but is also represented in the actual working practices. The study also confirms that accounting is not a static phenomenon, but one that changes over time to reflect new systems and practices. Research limitations/implications The paper has important implications for institutional research on accounting change and public sector reforms in responding to recent calls to bridge the gap between the extra- and intra-organizational levels of analysis. Hence, it has essential implications for the way in which successful change can be defined in accounting and organizational change literature. It also identifies that management accounting is both shaped by, and shapes, wider socio-economic and political processes, which has important implications for the methods of studying management accounting change. Originality/value The paper is one of the few case studies in the accounting literature to analyze the practical issues organizations face when changing their method of budgeting as influenced by public sector and fiscal reforms. The study contributes to both accounting literature and institutional theory by providing further understanding and ‘thick explanation’ of the dynamics of accounting change in the public sector.

  • Effect of Audit and Compensation Committee Membership Overlap on Audit
           Fees
    • First page: 34
      Abstract: Asian Review of Accounting, Volume 25, Issue 1, February 2017.
      Purpose Recent studies document that approximately two-thirds of sample firms have at least one audit committee member serving on their compensation committee (Liao and Hsu, 2013). Prior studies on overlap membership document that presence of audit committee members on compensation committee affects the reporting quality. Since auditors’ audit risk is affected by reporting quality, I examine how the auditors perceive the overlap of audit and compensation committee members when pricing audit fees. Design/methodology/approach I use a sample from 2007 to 2012 and run an OLS regression. Findings I find a negative association between overlap membership and audit fees. The results are robust after controlling for selection bias, alternate measurement of overlap membership, and an alternate pre-and post- overlap membership test. Additional tests show that the negative relationship between overlap membership and audit fees is explained by lower audit risk and not by lower brand premium of non-Big4 auditors and that the benefit of overlapping membership increases when the audit committee size is large. Practical implications The findings suggest that firms with large audit committee can improve their reporting and lower their audit fees by having audit committee members on compensation committee. Originality/value My findings contribute to the literature on the consequences of overlap membership and on the ongoing debate about the extent that common membership enhances audit committee monitoring. It also adds to the limited literature on audit committee and audit pricing.

  • Management of Income Statement Variables to Report Small Positive Earnings
           Numbers
    • First page: 58
      Abstract: Asian Review of Accounting, Volume 25, Issue 1, February 2017.
      Purpose Charting the earnings numbers reported by Korean firms produces a bell curve, but for a sharp discontinuity in the area surrounding zero. This study investigates if and how a large segment of Korean managers might manage accounting numbers to produce the observed result. Design/methodology/approach This study adopts an empirical research method using Korean listed firms as a sample. The primary focus of investigation is on major income statement variables that might produce the observed results in earnings from operations and net income Findings Managers of Korean firms opportunistically use almost all income statement variables to influence earnings numbers. They manage revenues and selling, general & administrative expenses to report small positive earnings from operations, but manage non-operating gains (losses) to report small positive net income. Research limitations/implications This paper does not answer several questions related to loss avoidance. First, we did not examine which actions, such as discretionary accruals, opportunistic business decisions, or bogus transactions, were employed to affect line items on the income statement. Second, we did not investigate what specific incentives trigger Korean managers to report small positive earnings. Korean firms have traditionally raised capital by borrowing funds from creditors and governmental agencies. Thus, they may be concerned that reporting losses would reduce their borrowing capacity. Finally, corporate governance, such as CEO tenure and option grants may influence the extent of earnings management to avoid losses, but most corporate governance data for Korean companies must be manually collected. Accordingly, these subjects are left for future studies as well. Originality/value This study contributes to accounting literature by reporting how managers of Korean firms artificially coordinate major income statement variables and report small positive earnings figures, noting the differences between earnings management investigating methodology and ones used in previous studies.

  • Effect of corporate governance characteristics on strategic management
           accounting in Thailand
    • First page: 85
      Abstract: Asian Review of Accounting, Volume 25, Issue 1, February 2017.
      Purpose This study aims to explore relationships between corporate governance characteristics and strategic management accounting. The relationships provide insight into a debatable issue of whether corporate governance characteristics affect applications of strategic management accounting in Thailand. Strategic management accounting is supporting tools for an organization to effectively execute its management strategies aiming for business success. Design/methodology/approach This study analyzes primary data from survey and corporate governance data from year 2011 to 2013 of companies listed on the Stock Exchange of Thailand. Findings Results show that corporate governance characteristics significantly affect strategic management accounting in two aspects, namely, participation and usage. This study finds some results that, on the one hand, separation of CEO’s role and chairmanship, size of independent board, and frequency of audit committee meetings positively affect both participation and usage. On the other hand, an independent chairman and board size negatively affect both participation and usage. Originality/value Findings confirm framework of enterprise governance issued by the International Federation of Accountants that not only does corporate governance provides assurance control, but it also provides strategic governance through behavioral applications of strategic management accounting tools and supports.

  • The adoption and success of contemporary management accounting practices
           in the public sector
    • First page: 106
      Abstract: Asian Review of Accounting, Volume 25, Issue 1, February 2017.
      Purpose This study examines the association between the interactive and diagnostic use of MCSs with the extent of adoption of contemporary management accounting practices, and the subsequent impact on the success of such practices in the public sector. Design/methodology/approach Data was collected through the distribution of a mail survey of 740 questionnaires to public sector organizations in Australia, and analysed using structural equation modelling (SEM). Findings The study found that both the interactive and diagnostic approaches to using MCSs exhibit a positive association with the adoption of contemporary management accounting practices, both as a package and individually. In addition, while the level of success of contemporary management accounting practices was moderate, it was found that the extent of adoption of the practices enhanced their success. Practical implications The findings suggest that by intensifying the use of MCSs in a more interactive and diagnostic manner, public sector organizations are more likely to adopt contemporary management to a greater extent, with the subsequent increase in the extent of adoption of such practices to exacerbate their success. Originality/value The study contributes to the MCS contingency based research by highlighting the interrelationship between two aspects of MCSs, the use of controls and the adoption and success of management accounting practices.

  • Segment reporting in a developing economy: the Indian banking sector
    • First page: 127
      Abstract: Asian Review of Accounting, Volume 25, Issue 1, February 2017.
      Purpose This paper investigates the value relevance of segment information for both public and private sector banks in India. In doing so, this paper examines a rapidly developing economy and perhaps its most critical sector during this period of strong economic growth. Design/methodology/approach In this study uses the simplified Ohlson model, for a sample of 136 private sector and public sector banks for the period 2007-2010 in India. Findings The paper finds that public sector banks have higher share prices, higher earnings and more equity compared with private sector banks. Segment earnings data is highly value relevant for both sectors; however segment equity data is only marginally value relevant for Indian banks. The number of segments is also value relevant and associated with higher share prices. Originality/value The results of this study contribute additional evidence to the literature on segment reporting by studying the effect of adoption of segment reporting in an emerging market. Findings from the paper are particularly relevant as India is currently in the process of changing its segment reporting requirements and moving to an IFRS-based segment standard.

  • Accounting Academics’ Teaching Self-Efficacy and Ethics Integration in
           Accounting Courses: A Malaysian Study
    • First page: 148
      Abstract: Asian Review of Accounting, Volume 25, Issue 1, February 2017.
      Purpose This study purports to examine the extent to which ethics education is incorporated in the curriculum by accounting academics (EXTENT) and its relationship with the following four factors: accounting academics’ attitudes towards ethics education (ATTDE); Head of Department support (HODS); peer support (PEERS); and accounting academics’ ethics teaching self-efficacy (ETSE). Design/methodology/approach The study utilises data from a questionnaire survey of 117 accounting academics in Malaysia and engages path analysis to test various hypothesised relationships. Findings The results indicate that ATTDE, HODS and PEERS have a significant and positive impact on accounting academics’ ETSE. The findings also suggest that ETSE and PEERS have a direct and positive impact on EXTENT. Overall, ETSE is found to be a significant mediating variable in the relationship between ATTDE, HODS, PEERS and EXTENT. Research limitations/implications The relatively small sample of 117 Malaysian accounting academics and the limited number of factors studied as drivers of ETSE, which limits generalizability of our results. Practical implications This paper is particularly useful for informing heads of departments and the regulatory and professional bodies of resourcing and fostering a work-environment that supports peer support and interactions as well as knowledge resources that facilitate individual accounting academics’ to integrate ethics content in their courses or units. Originality/value The study is guided by Bandura’s (1977, 1997) self-efficacy theory and adapts Tschannen-Moran and Hoy’s (2001) teacher efficacy construct in understanding how accounting academic’s belief in one’s ability to complete tasks and achieve goals affects the level of integration of ethics in their courses.
