2. Then you upload your Excel file (containing your consolidated financial statements)
and PDF file (the final glossy PDF paper you are used to produce).
3. Your files are now converted and combined into one xHTML file, that is shown in our viewer, ready for review by you or your auditor.

But how does this work in practice?
Once you have chosen the XBRL Converter for ESEF, the process from the beginning to the end is:
- Preparation: Our XBRL specialist prepare your Excel template to be iXBRL ready. Notice that this preparation only needs to be done once, the following years this is not needed.
- Mapping: Once your Excel template is prepared, the specialist will ensure that all accounting entries will be mapped into the XBRL dictionary (also known as taxonomy). If there is any extensions, anchoring’s or other things that needs to be done, this is done in this phase.
- Review: When the annual report is mapped, the specialist will send you an overview of the entries that has been mapped, and more important the entries where there is comments or questions in relation to the XBRL mapping. Then you will run through the entries, deciding how to map or extent them in relation to the XBRL taxonomy. We always encourage you to involve your auditor in this process, as your auditor will have to sign the annual report in the end.
- Implementation: When the review process is done, our XBRL specialist will come to your premises, and spend a half day, handing over the solution, learning you how to change, edit, add and extend account entries etc. The specialist will also educate you in using the XBRL Converter, uploading PDF and Excel files, converting them into XBRL etc. Said in another way – the specialist will not leave before you are educated and comfortable in producing xHTML/iXBRL files using the XBRL Converter on your own.
