Privatizing the statutory auditing services in Greece
This paper examines the historical process of privatizing the Greek auditing profession in the context of contemporaneous political and economic developments that date from the inception of the profession in 1955. The paper focuses on the successive attempts to implement the EEC's Eighth Company Law Directive that led to the abolition of the Body of Sworn-in Accountants - the state-sponsored institute and at the same time a practising firm. Furthermore, the changing expectations about the auditor's role as reflected in the privatization discussions over time are explored.
