ESEF reporting

is here to stay

ESEF is short for the European Single Electronic Format, a new and mandatory digital format for annual reports. ESEF makes annual reports more accessible and facilitates the analysis and comparability of these documents. To comply with ESEF, annual reports must be prepared in InlineXBRL (often abbreviated to iXBRL). It is a combination of HTML and XBRL which creates a digital annual report that is both ‘human readable’ and ‘machine readable’. From the reporting year 2021 ESEF reporting of financial information is mandatory for listed companies in the EU. From the reporting year 2023 all large companies are also required to 'tag' their reported sustainability information in accordance with the ESEF Regulation.
It is very easy to tag data and publish an ESEF report with F19 Software.
