Digital Financial Reporting Hub by XBRL Europe

To facilitate an anticipated adoption of ESMA’s ESEF rules, technologies & tools, XBRL Europe offers this ESEF Digital Financial Reporting Hub.

The European Single Electronic Format (ESEF/iXBRL) is the electronic reporting format in which issuers on EU regulated markets prepare their annual financial reports from 1st January 2020 (early adopters) and that will be mandatory all over the European Union form 1st January 2021.



Find information on the European Single Electronic Format (ESEF) on the ESMA ESEF page and the EC TD page. Read the consolidated ESEF Regulation : EU 2019/815 modified.
