    Abstract

    Corporate Governance Perception Index (CGPI) is the ranking of good corporate governance by Indonesian Institute for Corporate Governance (IICG) with SWA magazine. Companies that follow the CGPI survey showed a willingness to become a trusted and open. This effort should be perceived positively by stakeholders. Some previous researches showed that a corporate governance has a significant impact on the lowering the cost of debt (Piot Piera 2007 Sengupta Bhojraj 2003 Ashbaugh Skaife et al 2006). Therefore, this paper is aimed to search the benefit of GCG implementation to the cost of debt. All companies listed on the Indonesia Stock Exchange (IDX) which have a GCG score for survey period 2004-2009 are chosen as a research sample. Other variables such as Debt to Asset (DA), Return on Asset (ROA), Sales Growth (Sgrowth), Firm Size (Fsize and Market to Book (MTB) are considered as control variables. The results do not support the hypothesis. Several explanations, including the low level of creditor’s confidence to the good corporate governance practices have been discussed to support the research findings.
