ESEF Illustrated Taxonomy 2021

ESMA has released on December 10th the publication of the ESEF Taxonomy 2021 here.

The Eurofiling Foundation published on December 14th the ESEF Illustrated Taxonomy 2021. It is a document displayed in Excel the ESEF Taxonomy’s content. The IFRS Foundation describes the Illustrated Taxonomy concept here.

The author is Javier Mora, CTO of XBRL Spain. Eurofiling Board Member.

The publication is hosted by the Association Openfiling, among other Open Source resources.  See the details here.

Please note that issuers will be able to use the 2021 taxonomy to fulfil the ESEF obligations only when the updated ESEF regulation will have entered into force following the completion of the legislative process (approximately in March 2022).

DPM published as official ISO 5116 standard

It is a great pleasure to share with you that our joint Eurofiling Community development – the Data Point Model methodology – is now officially an ISO standard number 5116. To find out more please check: ISO 5116-1:2021  ISO 5116-2:2021  ISO 5116-3:2021

The DPM is as of 2021 in use across the entire EU, UK, South Africa, Moldova, Israel and several other jurisdictions. It enables data understanding across banking, insurance, investment firms and other verticals of our economy.

While it is impossible to list all the Colleagues who have contributed to this effort, one thing is certain: it represents a truly collaborative and extremely important consensus between regulators, private sector and vendors that builds transparency, trust, and usability into our economic ecosystem. Looking forward to work with you on the evolution of the DPM. See the attached invitation for details.

See the original documents here (developed in the CEN workshop for XBRL) and a list of 121 references to DPM here

ESMA publishes ESEF Conformance Suite

The European Securities and Markets Authority (ESMA) has published today the ESEF Conformance Suite to facilitate implementation of the ESEF Regulation.

The Conformance Suite builds on the rules and guidance set out by the ESEF Regulation and the ESEF Reporting Manual. It consists of 157 XBRL report packages, grouped into 60 tests, packaged in a zip file. It is accompanied by an Excel file which describes the rules and guidelines and the test cases, together with the expected error codes in case of incompliance. For each identified rule and guideline there is at least one valid and one invalid test case.

Energy and Carbon Reporting taxonomy

UK: New digital tool enables easier energy and carbon reporting

The Streamlined Energy and Carbon Reporting (SECR) taxonomy allows businesses to report their energy and carbon data when they file digital accounts with Companies House. The taxonomy has been developed by the Financial Reporting Council (FRC) in collaboration with Companies House and the Department of Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy (BEIS) and enables businesses to report information in XBRL format. Many companies already submit accounts using XBRL, but this is the first time it has been utilised to capture environmental data in annual reports.
