AbstractThis study aims to examine the effect of public accounting firm size, measured by number of partners, number of auditor staffs, number of clients, and public accounting firm’s revenue, on audit quality (measured by the accruals quality and going concern audit opinion). Samples are manufacturing firms listed in Indonesia Stock Exchange for the year 2006–2008 with total observations of 348 firm-years. Multiple regression and logistic regression is used for hypotheses testing. The results show that for the entire samples as well as for two sub samples, the sub-samples of firms audited by Big 4 and sub-samples of firms audited by Non-Big 4, there are no significant effect of public accounting firm size on audit quality. Large accounting firms does not always produce high quality audit. Thus, audit quality of large and small accounting firms can be considered fairly uniform.
