PENGARUH INDEPENDENSI AUDITOR DAN KOMPETENSI AUDITOR TERHADAP KUALITAS AUDIT DENGAN TEKANAN KLIEN SEBAGAI VARIABEL MODERASI
AbstractThis study aims to test whether client pressure can moderate the influence of auditor’s independence and auditor’s competence on audit quality. This study used a survey approach with questionnaire form which filled by 80 auditors who work at the Public Accounting Firm of North Jakarta listed at the Indonesian Institute of Certified Public Accountants. Regression analysis was used to test the hypothesis. The result of the research shows that if the auditor has high independence and competence, then audit quality will be higher also. Based on testing of a pure moderator, client pressure is able to moderate and strengthen each influence of auditor’s independence and auditor’s competence on audit quality. This suggests that this study produces an ideal condition in which client pressure makes the auditor more independent and competent to the job. Keywords: Auditor’s independence, Auditor’s competence, Audit quality, Client pressure
