The purpose of the present study is to empirically examine the association between, on the one hand, culture and the institutional environment and, on the other, the amount of information on internal control listed firms disclose in their annual reports. This study uses unique handcollected data from a sample of 2,172 firmyear observations for 815 distinct firms from 25 countries for the period 2005 to 2007. The amount of internal control disclosure is based on a self-constructed disclosure index comprising seven separate reportable items. The results indicate that both culture and institutional environment explain cross-national variations in the amount of information on internal control firms disclose in their annual reports after controlling for firm characteristics. Prior work on internal control disclosure focused on single countries and typically the US. The paper is the first to examine determinants of internal control disclosure cross-nationally.
