New tax laws to rock Spanish football to core

Spanish football faces being rocked by the abandonment of the 'Beckham tax law'. Local government reforms to the Spanish tax system are set to include an ending of advantages for foreign players in Liga football.

The new amendment, which is before the parliament, would see the abolishment of the 24 per cent tax rate for foreign players earning €600,000 or above and bring them into line with the rest of the population which pays 43 per cent.

The Spanish PFA have threatened a strike if the amendment is passed.

Premiership clubs will be looking on with glee as threats of the UK's new tax laws pushing foreign stars towards Spain would soon die down if the Spanish ruling is passed.
