Resumen

LOURENCO, António José dos Santos Morão  y  OLIVEIRA, Eduardo Carmo. Determinants of debt: Empirical evidence on firms in the district of Santarém in Portugal. Contad. Adm [online]. 2017, vol.62, n.2, pp.625-643. ISSN 0186-1042.  http://dx.doi.org/10.1016/j.cya.2016.06.010.

In recent decades, the theme of the capital structure and its determinants has caused some controversy and aroused great interest in the financial domain. Several theories and studies have emerged applying to this domain. This study aims to test the explanatory power of the determinants of debt which have the greatest support in the financial literature, size, growth, business risk, profitability, tangibility and non-debt tax shields and its validity in accordance with the theories of capital structure, on firms in Santarém's district. The sample contains financial data of 6184 firms for the period 2008-2012. The results indicate that firms in Santarém's district in Portugal have a high level of debt, using mainly short-term debt. The growth and profitability have proved to be determinants of debt, confirming the Pecking Order Theory.
