Digital transformation has been progressively attracting attention with its important influence on accounting and auditing in recent decades. This study aims at understanding the perception of digital transformation effect on audit quality to find out the digital challenges in auditing works at all stages. This study explores the perception of the effect of digital transformation on audit quality on four aspects, including audit users’ perception, regulations related to audit, auditors’ work, and auditors’ professional profile. A quantitative method is applied with data collected from a survey with 136 specialists in auditing. The results show a positive relationship between perception of digital transformation and audit quality. Recommendations from the findings are proposed for auditors, audit firms, and policymakers to adapt to the evolution of technology.
