The results of this study indicate that the size of the company that is proxied by total assets (SIZE), dividend policy which is proxied by the Dividend payout ratio (DPR), blockholder ownership proxied by (BO), and free cash flow that is proxied by (FCF) simultaneously have an effect on debt policy. T test results show that firm size has a negative effect on DER. Blockholder ownership affects DER. Whereas dividend policy and free cash flow do not affect DER. Simultaneous test results (f test) show the size of the company, dividend policy, blockholder ownership, and free cash flow simultaneously have a significant effect on DER.
