ESMA published the final report on the draft regulatory technical standards that amend or substitute the relevant Annexes (I and VI) of the regulatory technical standards on the European Single Electronic Format (ESEF) to reflect the IFRS Taxonomy update from March 24, 2021. The regulatory standards also incorporate additional guidance to preparers in the form of additional label types, which are made available by IFRS to facilitate marking-up of financial statements. ESMA submitted this final report containing the draft standards (Annex 1) to EC which has three months to decide whether to endorse the regulatory technical standards.
This draft regulatory technical standards specify for each element of the core taxonomy all the relevant label types included in the IFRS 2021 Taxonomy. In contrast, the current legislative text includes only the so called “standard label” and “documentation label." This is in response to the ESMA feedback, which highlighted that it would be helpful to preparers to include these elements in the core taxonomy, as this would facilitate accessibility of guidance material which is currently only available in the English language. To minimize the burden for preparers, this amendment to the regulatory standards on ESEF is mandatorily applicable for financial years beginning on or after January 01, 2022. Early application is allowed. Therefore, it is expected that for annual financial reports, including financial statements beginning on or after January 01, 2021, issuers will be allowed to use either the 2020 ESEF taxonomy or the 2021 ESEF taxonomy introduced by these draft regulatory technical standards. Early application is especially relevant and encouraged for issuers for whom one or more core taxonomy elements included in the 2021 ESEF taxonomy better reflects the accounting meaning of the disclosure being marked-up compared to the 2020 ESEF taxonomy.
