Abstract


By adopting the content analysis approach, this paper selects the annual reports of 45 China’s commercial banks to analyze the influencing factors of internal control information disclosure. The quality of internal control information disclosure of listed banks tends to be better than non-listed banks. Our empirical study shows that the factors of the exchanges of the banks’ listing, the proportion of the number of independent directors in the board of directors, and the times of the audit committee meetings have a significant positive impact on the quality of internal control information disclosure of commercial banks. To improve the quality of the internal control information disclosure of commercial banks, we put forward such suggestions as amending the supervision system, reducing the listing threshold and creating opportunities for listing for small and medium sized commercial banks, developing voluntary disclosure incentive policies, and intensifying effective punishment measures against and misbehavior in the information disclosure.
