Abstract
This research was carried out because there were several cases of financial statement manipulation that were only detected after the fraud resulted in considerable losses. Fraud pentagon theory which has five elements of fraud is considered to influence the occurrence of fraudulent financial reporting. This study aims to examine how effect of each element of fraud on the pentagon fraud theory is partially and simultaneously on the occurrence of fraudulent financial reporting in mining sector companies listed on the Indonesian Stock Exchange during 2013 to 2017. The samples used were 24 mining sector publicly listed companies that listed on the Indonesian Stock Exchange during 2013-2017, with 120 observations. The data used are secondary data in the form of financial statements and company annual reports which are used as research samples. Data test equipment uses SPSS software version 22. The results of the study indicate that all independent variables (opportunity, pressure, rationalization, competence, and arrogance) simultaneously have a significant effect on fraudulent financial reporting. The results of the study also show that partially, the pressure variable proxied by external pressure and the rationalization variable proxied by the total accrual ratio proved to have a significant effect on fraudulent financial reporting.
