The population in this study includes manufacturing companies listed on the Indonesia Stock Exchange from 2009 to 2018. The sampling method used in this study is purposive sampling. Data were processed using panel data regression analysis. The results showed that firm size had a negative and significant effect on audit delay. The complexity of the firm operations has a positive and not significant effect on audit delay. Profitability has a negative and significant effect on audit delay.
