SmartNotes - Layout-Roboter, InDesign-Converter and SN-Layout-Helper

With our two-part SmartNotes layout module - consisting of the InDesign Converter and the Layout Robot - we enable you to create a print-ready report directly from SmartNotes. You can take two different paths with our solutions. If you continue to work with your external layout agency or your internal layout team, e.g. your IR department, then you can use our InDesign Converter to avoid time-consuming and costly correction loops. With it, you can do up to 80% of the preliminary work in terms of layout and provide your agency with a directly processable document. Alternatively, you can use our layout robot in SmartNotes to create a print-ready report. It can be flexibly adapted to your table layout and controls it centrally, so you can achieve a consistent print-ready report layout in no time at all.

ESG Reporting with AMANA: Automated Data Flow and integrated XBRL Tagging

The current European Sustainability Reporting Standard (ESRS) exposure draft, as published by EFRAG defines 178 sector-agnostic disclosure requirements, sector specific disclosure requirements are not yet defined. Those disclosure requirements describe hundreds of single data points and narrative disclosures that must be reported in a human-readable report, as well as in a digital and machine-readable format. It includes data points on water and energy consumption, Greenhouse Gas emissions, pollution, biodiversity as well as many social aspects like disclosures on workforce.

In our webinar, we are going to summarize the challenges regarding the actual reporting and publication process, which includes:


• How to calculate, collect and consolidate the required data points by using solutions from AMANA partners.
• Using disclosure management software to be able to work collaboratively on the sustainability statements.

In our webinar, the experiences from the first year of ESEF implementation will be presented, especially regarding text block tagging. In addition to the technical requirements, we will also discuss practical examples of our intelligent software solution SmartNotes.

How to audit the upcoming ESEF text block taggings

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.

Starting from 2022, the full notes to the financial statements have to be tagged with text block taggings, additionally to the main financial statements, which is a new challenge for preparers and audit firms. Various technical and business details have to be considered as part of the assurance.

In the webinar we explain the new rule, and show how the XBRL Auditor can used to face the challenge, and which new features have been implemented in the version 1.2 to facilitate the textblock tagging assurance.

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 year of ESEF.
