Research instruments are developed and managed by site visits or mail services. Multivariate technique was deployed to data analysis using AMOS - structural equation modeling and Ping method used to estimate moderating effects estimation. The results of this study indicate that the reduced audit quality behavior occurs in the audit assignment practices and this is becoming a concern in audit profession. Research finding statistically highlighted that there is a positive and significant relationship between time budget pressure and reduced audit quality behavior.
