Certified iXBRL solutions by AMANA

What do the new ESMA guidelines mean for your 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 report are also mandatory. These ESEF reportings can be viewed with any web browser.

Listed companies are required to enhance their annual reports with machine-readable information within the XBRL standard. Our user-friendly solution involves applying these complex technical standards using our XBRL Tagger and SmartNotes Disclosure Management Solution. Automatic tagging of "accounts" from the IFRS standard, importing and updating figures from source systems and numerous validations enable you to fully meet the wide-ranging ESEF requirements and save precious time.

ESEF reporting requirements

  • All listed companies must report in XHTML format for fiscal years ending in 2020.
  • IFRS financial statements must be reported with the IFRS taxonomy in iXBRL format.
  • From 2020 on, the "main financial statements" must be tagged.
  • From 2022 on, the notes must contain a "text block" tag.
  • The “entity specific disclosures” must be reported through a taxonomy extension.
  • Anchoring: taxonomy extensions are allowed if no IFRS item is available in the ESEF taxonomy. The "company's own tag" must be anchored in the IFRS taxonomy.

XBRL Tagger – with AI to the ESEF iXBRL Annual Report

With our user-friendly XBRL certified software you can tag the ESEF and IFRS items in the corresponding taxonomies with no need for installation or IT knowledge. Use the XBRL Tagger to generate ESEF Reporting that meet the new ESMA requirements.

ESEF-compliant annual reports can be created quickly and easily by converting any MS Word, PDF, HTML or InDesign documents. Once assigned, the tags don’t get lost and can be easily rolled forward to the next year. We recommend including the XBRL Tagger in the annual report creation process to save time and money, but of course a "bolt-on" approach is also possible.

Integrate SmartNotes into the Annual Report Creation Process

We at AMANA have a long tradition of supporting our customers in creating annual reports and XBRL projects. By combining our expertise and the outstanding software solutions, SmartNotes makes it easy for you to get started with ESEF - and it is much easier than you think.

SmartNotes also offers you a variety of additional functions to assist your employees and eliminate non-value-generating activities. Employees can thus concentrate on tasks where their skills and know-how are acutally needed. Every time, for example, new figures are imported or rounded manually, your tables, charts and text are automatically updated across all applications and in every report language.

The end of every fiscal year means the start of a new one, so SmartNotes automatically rolls forward all your content for you. Imported values, rounding adjustments and any tags are retained and textes are directly available for editing.

In addition to ESEF, a variety of other output formats are available, such as print-ready Word, PDF, Excel, InDesign, XBRL, iXBRL and online HTML reports with CSS or the reporting format for the Electronic Federal Gazette. Print-ready report generation and integrated eBanz conversion in SmartNotes can help to significantly reduce costs for external services.
