Abstract. The purpose of this paper is to find out how firms manage earnings under volatile market behaviour and financial distress in Borsa Istanbul Stock Exchange (BIST). We used in order to determine four discretionary accruals models such as Jones, Adjusted-Jones, Kasznik, and Kothari. 171 listed companies in BIST for the annual data between 2006 and 2016 were used. Model was analysed by using panel data methods such as fixed effects, random effects estimation. Our results indicate that nondiscretionary accruals, discretionary accruals, firm size and leverage by the future profit value are significant determinants of earning management behaviour in Turkey. However, we do not find a significant relation between future profitability and volatile market index, financial distress. This research will lead the way of accounting standard setters and policy makers to understand earning management activities under volatile market behaviour and financial distress in Borsa Istanbul Stock Exchange BIST.

Keywords: discretionary accruals, earning management, profit management.
