Do auditors need to sign off on the tagging of ESEF iXBRL?

London’s leading financial iXBRL compliance solutions provider is urging businesses to take advantage of its expertise in order to meet new government legislations for ESEF filing.

Do auditors need to sign off on the tagging of ESEF iXBRL?

There was an audit requirement under what’s called “the Audit Directive in EU law” for ESEF to have an audit report which would have an opinion on whether the accounts have been prepared in accordance with the statutory requirements. The European Commission’s view that ESEF compliance should be considered a statutory requirement.

However, in December 2020 the UK government announced its decision not to introduce this mandatory auditor requirement.

So in the UK , there is no requirement for auditors to audit the ESEF tagging. 

A company may choose to do this voluntarily, but there is no requirement for them to do so.
