European single electronic format (ESEF) Digitalising EU listed companies’ financial information

From 1 January 2020 on, EU law requires listed companies to report their financial statements in the European Single Electronic Format (ESEF). This harmonised format makes reports machine-readable. With ESEF, the European Commission aims to facilitate access, analysis and comparability of financial statements and make reporting easier. This eventually serves to support investors in their investment decisions.

This factsheet provides an overview of these digital reporting requirements, including practical advice for preparers of financial information and the implications for statutory auditors.
