ESEF: Understanding What’s At Stake

Beginning January 1, 2021, the ESEF mandate requires all issuers on regulated markets within the EU and European Economic Area to submit Annual Financial Reports (AFR) in the European Single Electronic Format. Issuers must prepare their AFR in xHTML and, in the case of IFRS consolidated financial statements, include iXBRL (Inline XBRL) tags for the primary financial statements.

Here are some key takeaways from Bartek Czajka, Director of XBRL Consulting—read his complete thoughts on the Toppan Merrill blog.

What brought the mandate about?

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. The European Single Electronic Format is the result.

What is your advice for issuers?

Engage your regulator, auditor and service provider. 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.
