XBRL Consulting Hours
Our unique ESEF solution allows you to upload your financial statements using any file format you prefer. Our system then quickly processes your file, handling the complexities of XBRL mapping and tagging without error.
Even better? Being a true end-to-end solution, this is done with no impact to your workflow. Once complete, you need only to
review online, download, and file.
…the quality of your XBRL data will determine whether your financials are understood, your company is well-represented, and your business controls the story it wants to tell the world.
The mandate applies to all issuers within the EU. All financial statements for annual periods beginning on or after January 1, 2020 are affected. There is no phase-in by company size or sector.
The mandate began with the European parliament's goal to create a ''single digital market” that is machine-readable and more easily discoverable, bringing EU capital markets into the digital information age. In turn, this goal led to the 2013 EU Transparency Directive changes. ESMA then had the task of defining a single digital financial reporting format. The European single electronic format is the result.
Annual financial reports (AFRs) in xHTML format and iXBRL-tagged IFRS consolidated statements are due four months after year-end. We'll begin seeing the first ESEF filings in early 2021.
Engage an expert. iXBRL bridges the gap between humans and machines. So, XBRL expertise requires understanding both languages. But experts must also know how to apply the right tags and how to format reports correctly. All this ensures critical financial data is both compliant and accurate.
Based in London, our XBRL trained and certified team is consulting with issuers all over the EEA. Like you, we know how much damage even a small error can have on your company’s reputation. That’s why our own reputation makes all the difference.
