We support you at every stage of XBRL implementation



As a part of implementation XBRL experts provide a solid understanding of the new requirements and answers to the key challenges that the new XBRL format introduces, allowing for proper reporting in compliance with ESEF. 


Design and implementation of processes

We will review the current process of preparation of the consolidated financial statement using "walk-through" procedures, focusing on key areas for the new ESEF requirements, and identify weaknesses in the processes and areas for possible standardization and optimization. We will design and support the implementation of improvement actions and appropriate internal controls to ensure that the deadlines for preparing the annual report are met in the new electronic format.


Mapping and tagging consolidated financial statements

As part of the mapping process, we reconcile the relevant sections of the consolidated financial statements to the new ESEF taxonomy according to the requirements that will be in effect from January 1, 2020. The end product is a "blueprint" type report describing the mapped items from the consolidated financial statements to the tags required by the new ESEF rules.


Full outsourcing of tagging by PwC

PwC also uses the XBRL Reporter tool to provide outsourcing services to the client. PwC tags the financial statements with XBRL tags for the client and prepares a final ESEF compliant product.
