DataTracks, a global leader in disclosure management and regulatory compliance reporting software and services, demonstrated its state-of-the-art Rainbow solution for ESEF reporting in the XBRL Europe event.
The last week of May 2019 witnessed a major announcement regarding European Single Electronic Format (ESEF) at the event organised by XBRL Europe in the premises of Bank of France in Paris. At this event, the European Securities and Markets Authority (ESMA) announced that the ESEF regulation has been published in the Official Journal of the European Union, thus becoming a law. In essence, it would be mandated that all listed companies in the European Union (EU) provide their Annual Financial Returns (AFRs) in an XHTML format. Where AFRs contain IFRS consolidated financial statements, XBRL tags need to be embedded ensuring that the document is both machine and human readable.
During this event, DataTracks demonstrated the conversion of an AFR document into XHTML format by retaining the high-end design, and applying XBRL tags on top of the document using its Rainbow software. Further, XHTML output was rendered in a viewer built by DataTracks for efficient review of XBRL tags.
DataTracks' Rainbow software stands as the most promising option for filers looking to prepare themselves for ESEF reporting ahead of the mandate. Rainbow is capable of handling multiple taxonomies like IFRS and ESEF on the same platform, making it a versatile option for entities having reporting obligations in multiple jurisdictions, especially 20-F filings with SEC in the US.
“This demonstration is the result of a decade of DataTracks’ experience in creating products that produce thousands of documents in XBRL and Inline XBRL formats every year for various regulations around the world,” affirmed Pramodh Vittal, Vice President of Opportunities and Product Design at DataTracks.
“We feel excited to be part of ESEF regulation helping filers stay ahead of the mandate. With the ability to retain the style aspects of the document, filers can continue to follow the same process as before and conversion into XHTML format comes as a last step, saving compliance time and cost,” added Balaji Muthukrishnan, Senior Vice President of Operations at DataTracks.
