Audit Committee Adoption and Effectiveness on Internal Control Weaknesses

Jo-Lan Liu, Ching-Chieh Tsai, Jhih-Siang Su, and Yi-Ping Huang
Abstract— This study applies Heckman two-stage approach to investigate whether the adoption of an audit committee and its effectiveness could mitigate the incidence of internal control weaknesses (hereafter ICWs) for firms listed in Taiwan. The empirical results reveal that the incidence of ICW problems could be depressed by adopting the audit committee voluntarily. The findings also show that effective audit committees result in greater depression

Index Terms— Audit committee, audit committee effectiveness, internal control weaknesses, Heckman two-stage approach.
