Abstract


Abstrak: Karakter Akuntan dalam Filosofi Adigang Adigung Adiguna. Penelitian ini bertujuan menelaah karakter akuntan dalam filosofi adigang adigung adiguna ketika menjalankan profesionalisme pekerjaannya. Metode yang digunakan adalah kualitatif deskriptif dengan beberapa auditor senior sebagai informan. Penelitian ini menemukan bahwa filosofi adigang adigung adiguna muncul ketika akuntan melakukan proses audit sampai menerbitkan opini. Akuntan mengandalkan kedudukan, kekuatan, dan kepandaiannya untuk membuat keputusan etis. Sikap ini juga sangat melekat pada akuntan karena mereka selalu menjadi ujung tombak skandal informasi keuangan Meskipun demikian, sikap tersebut menjadi lemah jika akuntan tidak memiliki power atau integritas dalam melaksanakan tugasnya.

The method used is descriptive qualitative, with several senior auditors as informants. This study finds that the philosophy of adigang adigung adiguna arises when accountants conduct audits to publish opinions. Accountants rely on their position, strength, and intelligence to make ethical decisions.
