The purpose of this paper is to build a predictive model of financial distress in the banking sector with accrual-based earnings management as an intervening variable in mediating the effect of credit risk on financial distress. The sampling method used in determining the sample is 'purposive sampling'. The number of sample selected in this paper was 36 conventional commercial banks which experienced a decrease in profits during the 2016-2020 period with a total of 180 observations. To analyze the data, the panel data regression method was applyied. The result shows that ROA and LDR have an effect positively on financial distress. Likewise, credit risk as the main factor has an effect negatively on financial distress, and credit has an effect positively on on earnings management.
