All 154 submissions to the European Commission consultation on the establishment of a European Single Access Point (ESAP) are now available to download, and we’re pleased to see a strong positive response in favour of using XBRL.
XBRL International has submitted its response to the European Commission consultation on the establishment of a European Single Access Point (ESAP) for all reporting data. We argue that ESAP should be the primary source of information disclosed to markets in Europe, driven by XBRL for maximum utility.
If you have views on the proposed European Single Access Point, now is the time to make them known! The European Commission consultation was originally closing next week, but has now been extended by a week through 12 March 2021.
There is, as yet, no easy way to find European Single Electronic Format (ESEF) submissions and the valuable information they contain – although progress towards the European Single Access Portal (ESAP) is likely to change that over time. So XBRL US has started a collection point of its own to help data consumers access the filings.
The latest Eurofiling event, themed ‘ESEF today, ESG tomorrow,’ shared experiences of the European Single Electronic Format (ESEF) and looked ahead to the future of reporting in Europe: digital, comparable and wide in scope.
Grinding along in the background since 2016 have been a range of measures that seek to use disclosure mechanisms to rebalance various tax arrangements.

Ensuring that companies across the EU can get the investment they need to recover from the Covid-19 crisis means making sure investors have access to usable, comparable data.
