Abstract

Aunque la duración del contrato de auditoría ha atraído recientemente gran atención en la literatura, sobre todo, por sus posibles efectos sobre la calidad de la auditoría, la investigación no ha aportado hasta el momento una respuesta concluyente sobre esta cuestión. Este trabajo analiza la relación entre la calidad de la auditoría (subrogada por la probabilidad de una empresa de recibir informes cualificados por gestión continuada) y la duración del contrato. Nuestros resultados muestran que la duración del contrato no disminuye la calidad de la auditoría, por lo que como principal implicación para la regulación de la calidad surge la desestimación de la rotación obligatoria de auditoría.
