That an auditor brings good quality to the work he is performing is of great importance, not only for the company in question but also for its stakeholders. The information that the company disclose gets more credibility because of the auditor quality assurance. That the auditor tenure would affect the quality has been researched with different results, dependent on the legislation in the current country or region. In this paper we study how audit quality is affected of the audit tenure in Sweden. Based on research made in Belgium we have formulated hypothesis with factors that can affect the audit quality. Variables have been developed to measure the factor audit quality using GCW (going concern warning), audit fees, Big 4, the sale in the company and audit tenure.

The focus in our paper is, weather the company has gotten a GCW or not, to see the relationship between audit tenure and auditor quality. We have investigated this by studying 19 506 bankrupted companies and 1 117 financially distressed companies. Our study has only been provided by primary data.

Through analyses a relationship has been no defined between the tenure and the quality, with a number of explanatory variables. Our study explains that the auditor tenure in bankrupt companies, which tells us that there is no correlation between auditor tenure and audit quality. For the financially distressed companies there is no support for a result.
