Abstract:

We examine the connectedness of the individual audit partners in the relationship-based Chinese market and how that connection helps to diffuse tax knowledge among clients. We find that tax avoidance is positively associated with a firm’s audit partner network ties to low-tax firms, and the relation is more pronounced when partners have additional school ties with top executives at the focal firm. We also find the effect to be stronger for the partners’ initial engagement. Connected partners charge higher audit fees if they have no additional school ties with top executives at the focal firms. Although connected partners do not help clients of Top 10 audit firm to avoid taxes, we do find that clients of Top 10 audit firms avoid more taxes when partners have common school ties with top executives at the focal firms. Overall, the study documents a new dimension of network ties formed through shared auditors in diffusing tax knowledge.
