Build EBA XBRL reports directly in Excel

Like other regulatory agencies around the world, the European Banking Authority (EBA) has standardized on XBRL for the transmission of data submitted by filing entities, to capitalize on the benefits of standardized data.

For filing companies, however, the challenge lies in getting backend data into a valid XBRL format according to the EBA Taxonomy, especially since the employees recording the data are generally financial professionals.

What if you could get the EBA XBRL directly from a ubiquitous productivity tool that end users are already using for working with financial data, namely, Excel?

The EBA XBRL Add-in for Excel does exactly that.
