The Spanish Association of Tax Advisors, AEDAF, was created in 1967. It is now the leading association of tax specialists in Spain. Spence Clarke has been a member of this body since 1996. The association is performing an increasingly important role in holding the Government to account for legislation that is unfair to tax payers whether individuals or businesses. It has played a key part in causing the EU Commission to act against the Spanish Government to rectify defective legislation.
