Management Compensation, Gender Diversification, and Executive Preferences on Tax Avoidance of IDX Manufacturing Companies

Frans Sudirjo


This study aims to analyse the effect of management compensation, gender diversification, and executive preferences on tax avoidance practices in Indonesia Stock Exchange (IDX). Conceptually, this study uses mediating variables of executive gender diversification and executive preferences in the relationship between management compensation and tax avoidance. This study uses balanced panel data with a total of 404 observations from manufacturing companies listed on the Indonesia Stock Exchange in the 2015-2018 period. The results showed a negative assessment of management compensation on tax avoidance. However, further examination revealed that management compensation will positively influence tax avoidance if compensation is given to the board of directors who have gender diversification characteristics in the composition of their members indicated by at least one female director on the board of directors. Lastly, the greater the management compensation given to executives who have risk taker characteristics will also make directors to do greater tax avoidance.
