Abstract
This study examines the effects of loss framing, incentive and negative social consequent on earning management engagement. We conduct between-subject experiment with 82 students as participants. The independent variables are receiving loss framing, incentive and negative social consequences and the dependent variable is earning management engagement. The results show that the participants who received incentive and negative social consequences manipulations tend to be engages in earning management behavior than who didn’t received such manipulations. But we can’t have evidence that loss framing effect on earning management. This study gives implications for knowledge that the loss framing, incentive and negative social consequences are the important factors that affect individual earning management behavior. In practical, this study also contributes to regulatory setting.
