FEE responds to ESMA’s consultation on the European Single Electronic Format (ESEF)


FEE has responded to the European Securities and Markets Authority (ESMA) consultation on the regulatory technical standards for European Single Electronic Format (ESEF). ESMA proposes a new format that publicly listed companies will need to use for preparing their annual financial reports starting 1 January 2020. FEE thinks the reporting should be in line with IFRS taxonomy requirements. Therefore, FEE encourages ESMA to initiate a debate on better auditability of the process of electronic ‘tagging’ of the information.
