Abstract

This study examines the relationship between bankruptcy risk and tax avoidance, with the moderating effect of supervisory board independence on the relationship. This study was conducted by taking a sample from a developing country i.e. Indonesia due to its specific two-board system characteristics and related to tax regime. This study is a quantitative study using a regression analysis. Data are collected specifically from non-manufacturing public listed companies during 2014-2016. The results of the study show that there is a significant negative effect of the bankruptcy risk on tax avoidance. This study however cannot find the moderating effect of supervisory board independence on the negative effect of bankruptcy risk on tax avoidance. This study brings an implication specific to nonmanufacturing companies related to the effect of bankruptcy risk on company's tax avoidance.
