Abstract

This study examines the impact of applying the principles of Corporate Governance on an external auditor¡¯s independence and audit fees of over 26 Jordanian insurance companies listed on Amman Stock Exchange (ASE). Also, the study includes 6 audit firms that undertake audit missions upon these companies. To achieve the study objectives, a questionnaire has been developed for data collected and distributed on the study sample, which consists of (12) companies and (3) audit offices. As a result, (104) valid responses have been obtained. The results have showed there is a significant impact of Corporate Governance principles on auditor¡¯s independence and audit fees. The researcher recommends encouraging the independence of members of board of directors in Jordanian insurance companies because of its core effect on external auditor¡¯s independence.
