Yuanyuan Zhuang, Yutian Gu

Abstract

The relationship between goodwill impairment and traditionally applied leverage and firm size.The results support that the impairment test regime can reflect the corporative underlying economic attributes, at the same time, indicating that managers use discretion to reduce contracting costs.
