This includes the production of extensions and report packages as specified by ESMA for ESEF and UKSEF filings.

Seahorse creates fully-tagged Inline XBRL filings from existing PDF, Word, Excel and InDesign documents. Those who usually work with InDesign can import using the EPUB format to benefit from extra ease of use features. Its automated tag-selection engine uses machine-learning to take into account tagging selections made in thousands of previous filings. Seahorse’s roll-over feature, which copies the company’s prior-year tagging decisions, drastically reduces effort for subsequent years and makes switching to Seahorse easy.

Templates and extracts can be combined to create the whole return.
