Altova® EBA add-in for Excel, version 2021 Enterprise Edition


Home Prev Top Next

The Altova® European Banking Authority (EBA) XBRL add-in for Excel enables your organization to prepare XBRL (eXtensible Business Reporting Language) reports conformant with the EBA (European Banking Authority) XBRL taxonomy, or with related country-specific XBRL taxonomies.


The Altova® European Banking Authority (EBA) XBRL add-in for Excel enables preparers of XBRL supervisory reports to do the following:


Enter XBRL data in Microsoft Excel, using a predefined template spreadsheet which maps to the XBRL taxonomy.

Validate the report data directly from Excel, to ensure it conforms to the XBRL taxonomy.

Export report data from Excel to XBRL format.

Import data from existing XBRL reports into Excel.

Batch convert XBRL files to Excel (.xlsx) format.


The Altova® European Banking Authority (EBA) XBRL add-in for Excel supports the EBA XBRL Taxonomy (starting with version 2.0 up to the most recent version), and country-specific taxonomies. The supported country-specific taxonomies are as follows:


Banque de France (ACPR) COREP SUBCON - COREP, SubConsolidated (Prudential scope)

Banque de France (ACPR) LCB FT

Banco de Portugal (BdP) Reporting Framework

Banco de Portugal (BdP) FINREP ITS

Bank of England (BOE) Banking Taxonomy

Bank of England (BOE) Banking Statistics Taxonomy

Deutsche Bundesbank (BBK)

De Nederlandsche Bank Financieel Toetsingskader (DNB FTK)

National Bank of Belgium (NBB) FINREP (Financial Reporting)

National Bank of Belgium (NBB) TREP (Trading Reporting)

Single Resolution Board (SRB) LTD (Liability Data Template)

Single Resolution Board (SRB) RES

The list of supported XBRL taxonomies is periodically updated to include newer versions, independently of Altova add-in releases. To view or install the latest XBRL taxonomy versions, use the XBRL Taxonomy Manager tool included with the add-in.

The country-specific XBRL taxonomies are not installed by default when you install the add-in. The same applies to the older versions of the EBA XBRL taxonomy. You can view, install, upgrade, or uninstall such taxonomies on demand, using the XBRL Taxonomy Manager.


This documentation should be read in conjunction with the supporting documents included with the EBA XBRL Taxonomy, such as:


"Description of DPM formal model"

"EBA Architecture for XBRL representation of DPM"

"EBA XBRL Filing Rules"
