In just over a year, many of our customers will submit their first annual report in the new ESEF format. A year may feel like a long time, but it will be gone before you know it.

After several years of work, we at CtrlPrint have finally launched our solution for ESEF tagging. Our goal is to make the whole ESEF journey as smooth and comfortable as possible for you.


How do you get started?

Basic requirements:

For existing customers: Activate the service by emailing support@ctrlprint.netSpecify which project you want to activate the service for.

For new customers: Contact us at or +44 203 630 0133 and we will help you get started.

Update or install CtrlPrint Transfer Manager. You can find instructions here: Update | Install

Note: The tagger only works on PC

Following our December ESEF event, where we had more than 30 organisations participating, we have found that the following is a good starting point:

1. Start by auto-tagging the previous year’s accounts. What is tagged in the old report can then be transferred to the report for 2020 when it is in place in CtrlPrint.

For those of you who translate to English, you may want to start by auto-tagging the English version. The taxonomy is written in English and you will get better tagging suggestions.

2. After auto-tagging, you can review and update the automatically identified tags, and also decide what extensions and anchors you need to create.

This can be done with the help of an Excel sheet that you can easily download from CtrlPrint.

You are now well on your way to completing your ESEF tagging. On our website there are more films that you can use as support when you want to summarize, validate, export and so on. You will find the movies here.
