IFRS 16 in the GLC - Series for Users and Interested People: ESEF and ESG - Does this affect the leasing process?

Environmental Social Governance (ESG) is one of the most important current topics in the financial sector. Leasing tools and the leasing contracts administered in them are not yet in focus here. In this webinar, we will discuss how we believe ESG requirements can affect the leasing process and the leasing tool.

The software product is accompanied by a professionally and technically experienced consulting team in which the knowledge about the product and the processes surrounding the product is available to you in a bundled form.

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. Policies, targets, and specific action plans will have to be reported in order to see how companies are going to face the challenges of a changing world and climate change.

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.
• Automate the data flow from various sources into management reports in order to eliminate manual and error-prone process as well as to optimize the last-mile reporting process.
• Options how to handle formatting and the production of glossy and ready-to-print reports in Word or InDesign as well as online reports.
• Digital tagging of sustainability and financial statements with the ESRS or ISSB XBRL taxonomy.

ESEF text block tagging - Lessons Learned

According to the new ESEF Regulation, the tagging scope for the preparation of ESEF annual reports ending after 01.01.2022 has been significantly increased. 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.

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 solve ESG reporting and publication challenges with AMANA & Envoria

The latest European Sustainability Reporting Standard (ESRS) exposure drafts defining sector-agnostic disclosure requirements were published in November. The new drafts significantly reduce the number of disclosure requirements and data points. However, this reduction should not obscure the burden that continues to be placed on companies. 84 disclosure requirements and 1,144 quantitative and qualitative data points still must be reported.

To ensure reporting in accordance with the ESRS in due time, companies required to disclose ESRS information need to invest time now and set up or optimize their data collection and reporting process.

Together with our partner Envoria, SaaS specialist in sustainability reporting, we summarize the challenges regarding the reporting and publication process, which includes:


● How to understand the regulatory objectives
● How to calculate, collect, and consolidate required data points
● How to work collaboratively on sustainability statements using supportive tools
● How to automate the data flow from various sources into management reports
● How to digitally tag stainability and financial statements with the ESRS or ISSB XBRL taxonomy
● How to handle formatting and the production of glossy and ready-to-print reports
● How to implement the audit and publication of the final report

IFRS 16 in the GLC: The number of contracts does not matter - Why excel is not a permanent solution

In 2019, many companies decided to do the IFRS 16 accounting in Excel. Excle was the market leader in "leasing tools". In the meantime, we at AMANA have supported numerous companies in automating their leasing process and switching from Excel to a software solution - the AMANA GlobalLeaseCenter. The number of leasing contracts did not play a role here. Companies with fewer than 20 leasing contracts have also made the migration. The number of leases is therefore not an argument for the permanent use of Excel for lease accounting. In this webinar, we will explain the reasons why migration to a software makes sense in any case: for the employees who maintain and balance contracts, but also for the decision-makers.

The GlobalLeaseCenter is a convenient standard solution from AMANA to effectively and efficiently lease acounting according to IFRS 16. The software product is accompanied by a professional and technically experienced team of consultants, in which the knowledge about the product and the processes surrounding the product are bundled and made available to you.

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.
