This study conceptually explores the influence of firm internal characteristics in presenting timely audited report which is one of the parameters for quantifying a quality audited report. The reviewed studies reveal that although longer audit tenure might reduce the auditor independence and influence negatively quality of audited reports. However, considering audit report timeliness, longer audit tenure significantly reduce audit report lag, therefore positively have significant contribution to the quality of audited report. With this, the author suggests empirical investigation into the argument of elongated audit tenure on quality audit report in terms of impaired quality and timeliness.
