What do the new ESMA guidelines mean for my company?

As of 2020, the European Securities Markets and Authority (ESMA) requires all issuers on EU regulated markets to prepare annual reports in the Inline XBRL (iXBRL) format. Inline XBRL is an XBRL embedded in HTML, which means HTML annual reports are also mandatory. These ESEF reportings can be viewed with any web browser.

XBRL Tagger – ESEF Plug & Play without implementation project

With our easy-to-use XBRL certified software, you can create ESEF-compliant reporting in no time. Even without an implementation project and IT knowledge, you can immediately begin tagging your annual reports. The stand-alone XBRL tagger can recognize any data format and process all taxonomies. You can easily map IFRS taxonomy items to the corresponding financial statement numbers.

Convert any MS Word, PDF, HTML, or InDesign document to support the fast and easy operation of the stand-alone XBRL tagger. Once the mapping is done, all tags can be rolled forward to the new ESEF report in the following year.

Alternatively, the XBRL tagger is available as an integrated process solution within our disclosure management software SmartNotes. In addition to XBRL tagging, SmartNotes supports the complete end-to-end process from data imported from the consolidation system to the ready-to-print layout. Further information can be found here.

Disclosure Management SmartNotes:
End-to-end process to the annual report

Our Disclosure Management increases the efficiency in the preparation of annual reports and iXBRL reports and helps you to implement a valid ESEF reporting. Through the integration of the XBRL tagger, SmartNotes is available as a “built-in” version. In addition to XBRL tagging, SmartNotes supports the complete end-to-end process from data imported from the consolidation system, to the ready-to-print layout.

At the same time, our ESEF reporting software offers a variety of additional functions to support the professional work of your employees and to eliminate non-value-adding activities. For example, changes to a data import lead to an update of affected contents, in the tables, in the continuous text and in all language variants of your annual reports.

With our built-in role concept and full audit trail, we offer you revision security and also respond to your individual requirements. In addition, imported values, rounding adjustments, created taggings and texts are retained for the next report. In addition to ESEF, you can choose from a variety of other output formats, such as print-ready Word, PDF, Excel, InDesign, XBRL or iXBRL.

Check and validate ESEF and iXBRL reports with the AMANA XBRL Auditor

The new ESEF regulation mandates listed companies to publish their annual financial reports in iXBRL digital format. In many EU countries, the ESEF reports also have to be audited or reviewed.

The main challenge of auditing iXBRL reports is the technical validation, checking of tags selected by the report creator and the comparison of the traditional format (PDF) with the new iXBRL format. Auditing iXBRL reports requires new knowledge for auditors and can only be done with a proper certified XBRL software.

The AMANA XBRL Auditor was developed on the basis of our many years of experience from hundreds of XBRL projects with a clear focus on the review and audit of iXBRL reports according to the ESEF regulation.

The AMANA XBRL Auditor supports you by:

  • automizing the technical validation in accordance with the ESMA Validation rules
  • checks for integrity of the machine readable and human readable document
  • supports the documentation with checklists
  • version control, by comparing and tracking changes from one version to the other
  • client communication with comments
  • four eyes and review function

The generic approach allows the auditor to load any iXBRL report, no matter which tool was used to create the report. Immediately, the machine-readable dataset is validated and displayed and can be compared to the “human-readable” XHTML. The compliance check of the report as described by the ESEF Reporting Manual as well as the regulation itself can be performed and confirmed with a single click without any technical or XBRL knowledge.

This allows auditors to focus on what’s important: The checking of the actual XBRL tags and line items, anchoring and calculation link base, which requires traditional IFRS knowledge. The tagging of the main financial statements can be checked or commented on a line-by-line basis from one version to the other.

The integrated checklist allows the complete audit to be performed, commented and documented (using file attachments) by multiple users at the same time.

An automatic and intelligent change detection for new versions of the report ESEF report as well as an XHTML and iXBRL comparison allows to quickly compare changed reports of clients without having to repeat already checked items.

A comprehensive Excel report with all validation results, the taxonomy, the machine-readable data set in multiple views as well as the documented check steps and comments can be extracted.

ESEF Reporting as a Service - Outsourcing ESEF

Will the costs related to the preparation of reports increase?

The implementation of a new structured reporting format, especially in the area of tagging consolidated financial statements in line with IFRS using the iXBRL specification, may initially entail a low cost for companies. The costs will largely depend on whether the company chooses to prepare its annual financial reports using the iXBRL standard in-house or whether to outsource it:

  • In the case of self-reporting, it is estimated (2) that the implementation costs per company related to the preparation of the first annual report in the new format would amount to approximately EUR 8,200 on average, and the costs related to the preparation of subsequent annual reports would amount to approximately EUR 2,400 EUR;
  • In the case of outsourcing, the costs related to the preparation of the first annual report in the new format per company would amount to approximately EUR 13,000 on average, and the costs related to the preparation of subsequent annual reports would amount to approximately EUR 4,600.

 

In any case, initial costs will decrease significantly after the first reporting year (3). The creation of special software is to help companies to standardize and automate the process of preparing annual financial reports in accordance with the ESEF format.

(3) As stated by ESMA, but also as shown by the results of the AICPA study on reporting costs using XBRL.
