iXBRL tagging for UK HRMC

iXBRL was first introduced in the UK in 2010 by Her Majesty's Revenue & Customs (HMRC) and Companies House.

It’s now mandatory in Ireland and the UK for all businesses to use iXBRL when submitting their company tax returns, including accounts and computations with HMRC and Irish Revenue. Accounts or computations in PDF format are no longer permitted for most companies. Please refer to the UK government’s XBRL guide for UK businesses for more information regarding rules and regulations. After converting a financial report to an iXBRL accounts format, iXBRL tagging is the process of marking up your financial data with tags that identify the information contained within it using iXBRL tagging software. This makes financial data readable by machines and human beings, making it easier to process and analyze. iXBRL reports can be viewed by any internet browser. The iXBRL conversion and iXBRL tagging processes can be completed either manually or with certified software such as that automates the conversion and tagging process for you. This makes it easier and faster for your organization to create fully compliant and correctly tagged financial reports.

The difference between ­iXBRL for HMRC and iXBRL for ESEF

The iXBRL format is required for both HMRC and ESEF reporting. However, iXBRL reporting for submission to HMRC is distinct and separate from iXBRL for ESEF.


  1. HMRC refers to the UK GAAP taxonomy where businesses in the UK are required to submit financial statements in iXBRL format to HMRC as part of their Corporation Tax return.
  2. A single iXBRL-format file is required by HMRC. Custom elements are not permitted.
  3. iXBRL reporting to HMRC is a requirement for all businesses in the UK, from small to large.


  1. ESEF is a new and distinct taxonomy based on the IFRS taxonomy, which in the United Kingdom is known as UKSEF. In the UK, the Financial Conduct Authority (FCA) is responsible for adopting ESEF and establishing any UK-specific regulations. The FCA has collaborated with Companies House and HMRC to develop an UKSEF taxonomy that enables the filing of ESEF-tagged accounts to the FCA’s national storage mechanism.
  2. ESEF requires the tagging of financial information such as the Income Statement, Balance Sheet, Cashflow statement and Statement of Changes in Equity (SOCIE), including (foot)notes. Custom elements are permitted in an ESEF report and must be anchored to existing elements in the taxonomy.
  3. ESEF solely applies to main-market listed companies in UK and requires them to prepare and submit their annual financial statements digitally in xHTML format, and tagged with machine-readable data (iXBRL). Non-consolidated statements must be presented in xHTML, and consolidated financial statements must be tagged using iXBRL.

Moving from ESEF to UKSEF

What is UKSEF?

UKSEF refers to the single electronic format released by the UK, which is a variant of ESEF. The UKSEF taxonomy is an expansion of the ESEF taxonomy and is aligned with the FCA and Companies House filing requirements. UKSEF filings, in comparison to the standard ESEF requirements, must include the following:

  • Full Streamlined Energy and Carbon Reporting (SECR) disclosures
  • Company registration number and expiration date

Moving to or adopting UKSEF should be a simple process for public companies listed in the United Kingdom. In addition to the above-listed additional requirements of UK regulators, the UKSEF taxonomy encompasses everything from the ESEF taxonomy.

When does UK ESEF apply?

The FCA in the United Kingdom has delayed the enforcement year for businesses to submit their Annual Financial Reports in ESEF. The new enforcement date was January 1, 2021.

This delay gives businesses more time to prepare for ESEF reporting (UKSEF reporting) and to become compliant with the new requirements.
