The move will enable users of the Board decision-making platform to produce ESEF-compliant filings with ease

Software vendor Board International today announced a partnership with regulatory reporting software provider CoreFiling, which will see the Board decision-making platform benefit from industry-leading iXBRL reporting capabilities. 
The European Single Electronic Format (ESEF) is the new standard for preparation of  annual financial reports for companies listed on EU and UK exchanges. Through the partnership, CoreFiling’s iXBRL reporting functionality will be available directly within the Board platform, enabling users to easily generate compliant AFRs. Auto-tagging, table tagging and AI assistance ensures that tagging is fast, correct and consistent. All taxonomies and filing rules are managed and require no effort from the users to keep up to date.

“Our Seahorse® iXBRL offering, which is now embedded directly within the Board platform, allows companies to effortlessly convert their glossy financial statements into ESEF-compliant AFRs.. We are very happy to partner with Board to help more European issuers produce high-quality ESEF reports as easily as possible. We see this as a strategic partnership and look forward to working with Board on further regulatory and compliance requirements,” comments Philip Allen, Executive Chairman of CoreFiling.

“The Board platform offers a powerful, flexible approach to financial reporting as part of its unified business intelligence, planning, and predictive analytics environment. With many organizations facing the need to deliver ESEF compliant reports, we wanted to enhance our offering by introducing a range of iXBRL reporting features to the platform. We partnered with CoreFiling based on their industry-leading status in the field, which will enable companies to make light work of ESEF-compliant financial disclosure within Board,” comments Pietro Ferrari, CTO at Board International. 

“We have already received extremely positive feedback from customers who have piloted the new iXBRL ESEF reporting capabilities and look forward to enabling more organizations to deliver compliant reports with ease,” adds Michele Bernasconi, Head of Financial Applications at Board International.
