Summary Major business failures, including Enron and WorldCom in the United States and Harris Scarfe and HIH in Australia, and related alleged audit failures, have put the choice of auditor on the agenda. The choice of the right auditor has economic consequences for an auditee and implications for corporate governance. Factors important to explaining auditor choice are discussed, including institutional factors (pertaining to the auditee and auditor) and newer emerging criteria as well as networking between directors and auditors. Relevant research and the policy implications for good corporate governance of auditor choice in publicly listed companies are explored.
