Audit Committee's Effectiveness and Financial Reporting Quality
Nurul Nazlia Jamil and Sherliza Puat Nelson
Financial reporting quality has been under scrutiny especially after the collapse of major companies. The main objective of this study is to investigate the audit committee’s effectiveness on the financial reporting quality among the Malaysian GLCs. In particular, the study examined the impact of audit committee characteristics (independence, size, frequency meeting and financial expertise) on earnings management in periods prior to and following the transformation program (2003-2009). The study is important as it provides additional knowledge about the impact of audit committee’s effectiveness on reducing the earnings management, and assist practitioners, policymakers and regulators such as Malaysian Institute of Accountants, Securities Commission and government to determine ways to enhance audit committee’s effectiveness and improve the financial reporting of GLCs, as well as improving the quality of the accounting profession.
