This study aims to analyze the value relevance of fixed asset revaluation and whether debt levels moderate value relevance of fixed asset revaluation. Signaling theory states that the company revalues its assets with the aim to provide credible signals about favorable future prospects; whereas debt contracting theory suggests that firms with high debt levels have opportunistic motives in doing the revaluation of fixed. This study uses 54 data of nonfinancial companies listed on the Indonesian Stock Exchange and have revalued its fixed assets in the period 2012-2015.
