AC chairman (accountant, former senior auditor, interlock and social status) on earnings management. The earnings management is refer as discretionary accruals on this paper. The measurement on discretionary accruals shown there is no impact on AC chairman role. However, other variables shown the relationship namely size of firm and return on equity of company with discretionary accruals.
