How can companies begin to prepare for the new ESMA ESEF reporting requirements?Sarah Whitworth
You may have heard about the ESMA ESEF regulatory requirement. The first statements that will need to be produced using ESEF are those for financial years starting on or after 1st January 2020.
The European Single Electronic Format (ESEF) requires annual reports to be produced in a web-native XHTML format, rather than a downloadable document like a PDF. Companies that file annual reports using International Financial Reporting Standards (IFRS) are also required to tag consolidated financial statements with eXtensible Business Reporting Language (XBRL); a machine-readable format that makes financial statements easy to compare with those of other companies.
