The Changing Relationship between Tax and Financial Reporting in Spain
The operational connection between tax and financial reporting has been reported on in detail for a few countries but not for Spain. However, the literature suggests that there was a great reduction in the influence of tax in Spain in the early 1990s. This paper applies the methodology of earlier researchers in order to measure the tax/reporting linkages for Spain at three different dates. We find that Spain is intermediate between France/Germany and USA/UK in the degree of tax influence on financial reporting. We also find that the common belief in a major reduction in tax influence over time can be refuted.
