Husam Al-Khaddash, Rana Al Nawas, Abdulhadi Ramadan

This paper focuses on identifying the most important factors affecting audit quality in Jordanian Commercial Banks (JCBs). The perceptions of JCBs' internal and external auditor's in addition to financial managers have been investigated. In general it was found that the respondents believe that audit quality in the Jordanian banking sector ranges from satisfactory to very good. The results indicate a positive and significant correlation between audit quality and audit efficiency, the reputation of auditing office, auditing fees, the size of audit firm, and the proficiency of auditor. The results of this study make a contribution to existing literature in the area of factors affecting audit quality in eastern developing countries such as Jordan. In addition, this research adds further evidence to the value of studying auditing efficiency, the reputation of audit firm, auditing fees, the size of auditing office, and the proficiency of auditor on the quality of auditing.
