ESEF

Is your company one of the approx. 7,500 companies in Europe that currently prepare your financial report in accordance with the ESEF regulation? Producing an ESEF report is still an unfamiliar process for many companies but don’t despair – you are not alone!

When helping hundreds of companies to produce their annual report in the ESEF reporting format, we at CtrlPrint have noticed that there is still a lot of confusion of what to do and how to do it. The questions our Client Services team receive are often very similar, which indicates that most of you are struggling with the same issues.

To ease the process and answer the most common questions we have gathered our tutorials, online courses, instructions etc building on CtrlPrint’s ESEF solution.
