This research shows that two of the six elements, namely capability and rationalization, have a significant effect on fraudulent financial statements. The impact is positive, confirming the proposition of the hexagon theory.. The findings in this research show that there are three variables that can detect fraud in financial statements, namely CEO duality, Change in Auditor and CEO Picture.
