Abstract

In this chapter we highlight the differences between audits of private and public companies and review and synthesize the available empirical evidence, which is sparse in comparison to what is available for public companies. The evidence is fragmented and more research is needed in order to understand the role of auditing among private companies.

Keywords: auditing, private firms
