Abstract
Based on the A-share listed companies on the main board of Shanghai and Shenzhen during the 2014-2016, which have been restated in the financial reports, this paper selected the sample of listed companies with deficiencies in internal control. According to whether the listed company disclosed the internal control deficiencies in the self-evaluation report or not, this paper analyzes the influence of external audit characteristics on selective disclosure of internal control deficiencies. It is found that companies with large audit scale and longer audit tenure are less inclined to disclose internal control deficiencies selectively, and the change of audit firm and non-standard audit opinion of financial report can restrain the selective disclosure of internal control deficiencies.
