Words Of Appreciation


ESEF iXBRL Compliance Reporting - Johan SegersWe selected IRIS CARBON® for our ESEF iXBRL conversion, since IRIS is a global firm with deep experience in XBRL/iXBRL, great quality of filings, service delivery and importantly, offers their service and solution at a very attractive price.

We started our iXBRL process in August 2019, and IRIS converted our 2018-19 Annual Financial Report into iXBRL within just 10 working days. A 2-day workshop conducted by them for our team was extremely helpful, and it was very nice to have our own tagged annual report as training material. This exercise also helped us in finalizing the XBRL tags this year and we are fully ready for the upcoming 2020 ESEF mandate.

We are very happy with the turn time and quality of the iXBRL output created by IRIS CARBON®.

Frequently Asked Questions


All public listed companies who have securities or bonds listed on capital markets and who prepare financials using IFRS have to comply with the ESEF iXBRL tagging requirements.

If you are a public company and publish your standalone results in local GAAP, your Annual Financial Report (AFR) needs to be submitted in xHTML format, but the XBRL tagging requirements do not apply to you.

While iXBRL, Inline XBRL and xHTML are used interchangeably by many people in the context of ESMA ESEF reporting, you need to remember these are not the same. A document in xHTML format is technically an iXBRL or inline XBRL document only if has XBRL tags embedded in the document.

XBRL and iXBRL are two different reporting formats. XBRL is an XML based format, and is only machine readable. iXBRL or inline XBRL, is an xHTML based format, and is both machine and human readable. Read more about the difference between XBRL and iXBRL here.

  • All numbers in the Primary Financial Statements (balance sheet, income statement, stockholder’s equity, cashflow statement, etc.) need to be XBRL tagged in the first Phase (Annual reports with financial years beginning on or after January 1, 2020)
  • All notes will need to block tagged (Annual reports with financial years beginning on or after January 1, 2022)
  • All numbers within the notes can be tagged voluntary at any time

The entire Annual Report needs to be submitted in xHTML format. Within the report, XBRL tagging needs to be applied specific numbers and text, as per the directive of the ESEF mandate. Check the previous question on Scope of iXBRL tagging for more information on what data ESMA is expecting issuers to tag within the report.

iXBRL requires the tagging to be done on the face of the AFR itself. Ideally, therefore, the iXBRL output should look like the original AFR, in terms of layout, formatting and style. The only difference is that the iXBRL report will be in xHTML (and not Word or PDF or InDesign), and will have XBRL tags embedded in the xHTML document.

Since XBRL is not a human readable format, most XBRL solutions don’t have the ability to handle the layout, formatting and style of the original AFR.
