Abstrak: Tujuan dari penelitian ini adalah untuk menganalisis pengaruh kualitas audit yang diukur dengan ukuran KAP, spesialisasi industri auditor, dan audit capacity stress terhadap manajemen laba riil. Manajemen laba riil diukur dengan model Roychowdhury (2006) yang dibagi oleh tiga proksi yaitu manipulasi penjualan, kelebihan produksi, pengurangan biaya diskresioner. Sampel penelitian ini adalah 162 perusahaan nonkeuangan yang terdaftar di Bursa Efek Indonesia periode 2007-2011. Hasil penelitian menunjukkan bahwa ukuran KAP tidak berpengaruh terhadap manajemen laba riil. Spesialis industri auditor dapat meminimalkan manipulasi penjualan dan produksi, dan tidak berpengaruh terhadap manipulasi pengeluaran diskresioner. Audit capacity stress digunakan untuk memaksimalkan manipulasi penjualan, dan tidak berdampak pada manipulasi produksi dan pengeluaran diskresioner.
