Abstract [sv]

Revisorn står inför ett fundamentalt dilemma, där oberoende måste prioriteras under revisionen samtidigt som konsulttjänster utgör en viktig inkomstkälla och kräver en god relation till klienten. Detta dilemma kan vara extra problematiskt i små bolag eftersom risken för socialt beroende antas vara större när färre individer är involverade. Syftet med studien är att skapa förståelse för hur revisorer resonerar kring gränsen mellan rådgivning och revision i små bolag. För att uppnå syftet med studien har sju revisorer intervjuats och materialet har studerats utifrån social identitetsteori. Resultaten indikerar att revisorer för små bolag har stark identifikation med klienten, vilket kan göra att deras oberoende riskerar att nedprioriteras till förmån för klientens behov. Förslag till framtida forskning kan vara att göra en liknande kvalitativ studie som denna, men istället fokusera på stora bolag. Denna studie ger ett bidrag till diskussionen om beroende och oberoende eftersom denna studie visar att förståelsen för hur oberoendet konstrueras kan öka genom att studera hur revisorer identifierar sig

Abstract [en]

The auditor faces a fundamental dilemma, where independence is a priority during the audit while consulting services are an important source of income and requires a good relationship with the client. This dilemma can be particularly problematic in small companies because the risk of social bonding is assumed to be greater when fewer individuals are involved. The purpose of this study is to create an understanding of how auditors reflect about the boundary between consulting and audit in small companies. In order to achieve the purpose of the study, seven auditors were interviewed and the results have been studied from social identity theory. The findings indicate that auditors of small companies have strong identification with the client, which can make their independent risk a lower priority in favor of the client's needs. Proposals for future research could be to do a similar qualitative study, but instead focus on large companies. This study provides a contribution to the discussion of dependent and independent because this study shows that the understanding of how independence is constructed can increase by studying how auditors identify themselves.
