讲座主题:Incentive Alignment and Corporate Tax Avoidance: Evidence from a Natural Experiment

 

摘要:Using the Split-Share Structure Reform in China as an exogenous shock to incentive alignment, we find that a better alignment of incentives between corporate insiders and minority shareholders positively affects corporate tax avoidance. While a better alignment of incentives increases low risk tax planning, it has no significant impact on high risk tax avoidance or illegal tax avoidance decisions. Consistent with the idea that firms in greater need for cash will engage in more tax avoidance, we find that the effect of incentive alignment on corporate tax avoidance is stronger for firms facing more pronounced financial constraints. The results are stronger for non-state owned enterprises than for state-owned enterprises. Finally, the results are robust to a variety of tests run to mitigate identification concerns.
