The Spanish Accounting and Business Administration Association (AECA) is the only professional Spanish institution that issues generally accepted Accounting Principles and Standards, and recommendations or studies concerning good practices in Business management. Founded in 1979, the mission of AECA is to achieve a continuous improvement in the competence level of business professionals. We believe that a good professional guarantees the development of organizations and the progress of society.

AECA associates include as well nearly all institutions, associations and professional corporations related to accounting and business management, and a large number of industrial, commercial and service oriented companies, specially from financial, audit and consulting firms.
