How to Generate an Extensions List

When you create your iXBRL report, there is a good chance that you will need to create an extension to the taxonomy elements to perfectly match your accounts. Click here for a description of what extensions are and when they are necessary to create. Depending on the size and complexity of your financial reporting, you may even need to create more than a few, and often, your auditor would like an easy way to review the extensions you've made.

Because of this, we have provided you with the option to download a complete list containing information about all the extensions used in your report.

What is an extension list?

When you start mapping your annual financial report, ESMA requires that you markup disclosures using the taxonomy element with the closest meaning. If a standard taxonomy element misrepresents the meaning of the account, you need to create an extension.
The extensions will display the same information as standard elements on the facts list. They will, however, also display information on how they are anchored within the taxonomy.

How to download an extensions list?

First, you convert the report/open your already converted report in the ParsePort Platform 

Then, click the menu item Extensions (as shown below). In the top right corner, you will find an icon labeled with an "X", which you press to download an Excel sheet containing the extensions list.

Please note that you can also download the fact list, which includes the full list of both the standard facts and your extensions.

Additionally, you can use ParsePort Platforms Manual where export options are explained in detail.
