Nevertheless, the focus of the studies in management accounting field is still in the developed countries. Studies on the adoption of management accounting practices (MAPs) in developing countries are still too little. This study explores the level of adoption of MAPs in SMEs sector in one of the developing countries in Indonesia. This study also examines factors which may affect the extent of use of MAPs in SMEs. Logistic regression is applied to analyze the data and to test the hypotheses.
