Our XBRL Auditor features
Check and validate ESEF and iXBRL reports
Due to the new ESEF regulation, annual reports must be disclosed digitally in XBRL format. The focus here is on machine readability, tagging and content consistency with the traditional format (PDF). These new challenges can only be met with certified XBRL software.
The XBRL Auditor has been developed on the basis of our many years of XBRL experience and as the market leader in the D-A-CH region to reliably digitally audit ESEF and iXBRL reports. The XBRL Auditor's generic approach makes it possible to load any iXBRL report. Immediately, the machine-readable data set is validated and compared to the "human-readable" XHTML.
With the new regulation applicable to reports for fiscal years ending in 2022, text blocks in the notes must also be available in machine-readable form. The IDW further published a guideline stating that tables must also be marked as tables in the XHTML source code. The XBRL Auditor supports you in determining this requirement with a special table detection.

How to get ready for auditing the upcoming ESEF season
The ESEF regulation mandates listed companies to publish their annual financial reports in iXBRL digital format. In many EU countries, the ESEF reports also have to be audited or reviewed. The main challenge of auditing iXBRL reports is the technical validation, checking of tags selected by the report creator and the comparison of the traditional format (PDF) with the new iXBRL format. Auditing iXBRL reports requires new knowledge for auditors and can only be done with a proper certified XBRL software.
In the webinar we explain how the XBRL Auditor can be used to face this challenge, and which new features have been implemented in the latest version to make the auditing process a lot easier.
The AMANA XBRL Auditor was developed on the basis of our many years of experience from hundreds of XBRL projects with a clear focus on the review and audit of iXBRL reports according to the ESEF regulation. Moreover, our software is already successfully used by numerous audit firms including Big Four firms. In our webinar, we will show you the features and benefits of the XBRL Auditor when auditing ESEF reports, as well as our experiences from the first years of ESEF.
