    Several researches have worked on audit quality and thus particularly after the financial scandals that occurred in the beginning of the century. A number of these researches have linked the audit quality to auditors' reduction behaviours. Despite the role of the auditee in the audit conduction, none of them has tried to identify the reduction behaviours that can be caused by him. The objective of this research is to identify the auditor client (hereafter auditee) behaviours which can reduce audit quality. Conducting both an observation and an interview approach within 25 auditors and 16 accounting and financial directors, we identified 12 auditees' behaviours that may reduce either the auditor competence or independence or both competence and independence.
