Abstract: This study aims to identify the relationship between managerial entrenchment, audit quality, and earnings quality. This research was conducted using 76 samples of manufacturing companies listed in the Indonesian Stock Exchange from 2016-2018 (228 observations). Managerial entrenchment is measured by the length of CEO occupying his position (CEO tenure), Audit quality is measured by KAP status as big 4 or not, while earnings quality is identified by companies’ discretionary accruals. This study also uses a control variable consisting of leverage, company size, and company profitability. The results showed that the managerial entrenchment of manufacturing companies in Indonesia in the year of the study was not related to earnings quality, on the contrary audit quality was proven to be able to improve the earnings quality of the company. Furthermore, from the three control variables used, only profitability has been proven to be related to earnings quality.
