Creating XBRL reports

New XBRL taxonomies often lead to problems when creating XBRL reports. The engine provides comprehensive, easy-to-use tools that fulfil the demanding requirements of XBRL standards. Through our many years of experience with the XBRL specifications, we have developed a generic XBRL processor that can quickly and transparently create valid XBRL reports based on all taxonomies, whether ESEF, IFRS, GAAP and many more.

Regulatory compliance

The latest requirements from SEC, HMRC, EBA, EIOPA and other regulators need to be implemented quickly and easily for XBRL to provide a real benefit. The user needs a high level of expertise to comply with all aspects of the XBRL specification. With the XBRL Engine, AMANA has a platform that simplifies the process and, through its user-friendliness, ensures that XBRL reports are created with the least possible effort. At the same time, the use of supervisory authorities such as the Liechtenstein FMA, Czech CNB and FCA in London testifies to the quality of the XBRL Engine as software for receiving and evaluating XBRL reports.

Success stories

A major German bank

A major German bank uses the AMANA XBRL Engine to generate its FINREP/COREP reports. AMANA has developed a web service (‘XBRL Bridge’) that can import data from the ‘Financial Data Warehouse’ (Oracle database) in order to generate XBRL instances from them. In addition, the instances can be validated (XBRL Formula Validation + Custom Validation) and visualised (Excel reports). The XBRL Bridge of Deutsche Bank is accessed via a web-based interface (Java). Currently over 80 users work with our solution.

To date, hundreds of FINREP|COREP|AE instances have been transmitted using the XBRL Bridge by all European group entities. Among the recipients of the XBRL reports is the Bundesbank as well as the FCA in the UK, the Banco de Portugal and others.

Deutsche Bank was the first bank in Europe to submit the reports on time. We worked closely with the authorities to optimise the new process. The ECB referred explicitly to the largest XBRL report submitted by the Deutsche Bank in November 2014 – because it overtaxed the undersized systems of the ECB.
