Using the two-stage least square (2SLS) method and moderated regression analysis (MRA), this study aims to investigate family companies in carrying out strategic earnings management activities by avoiding activities that reduce the value of the company’s long-term. It also aims to investigate managers to determine the two strategies of real earnings management and accrual in a complementary or substitute (trade-off). Some contextual factors that are used to control family companies do earnings management are a representation of women, firm age, and chief executive (CEO) entrenchment. From the results of the analysis it is known that from the concept of socioemotional wealth (SeW), family companies prioritize the interests of the company to maintain transgenerationally and maintain the company’s reputation. Furthermore, family companies are more careful about using real earnings management and accruals than non-family companies. This means that family companies that reduce real activity manipulation (RAM) have better financial performance in the future than non-family companies. Whereas family companies that reduce accrual-based earnings management (ABEM) activities do not show good future financial performance compared to non-family companies. Overall, the results of the study illustrate that the earnings management of family companies in Indonesia is efficient.
