Abstract

The study investigates the effectiveness of audit committee in terms of the quality of reporting. Specifically, the study examines the relationship between quality of reporting of companies listed on the Bursa Malaysia and some elements of corporate governance namely the external audit and the audit committee.
Characteristics of audit committee being examined include
financial literacy, multiple directorships, independence of audit committee, and activeness of the committee. Good quality corporate reporting provides
credible information of company performance to users for economic decisions.
The quality of corporate reporting is determined based on the selection criteria
for the National Annual Corporate Report Award 2002. The sample consists of fifty-four companies with good annual reports and fifty-four companies
with poor annual reports. Using logistic regression, results show that only
multiple directorships of audit committee members is significantly related to
quality of reporting
