Authority Software


There’s a digital revolution afoot in regulatory reporting and companies are having to contend with the ever-increasing complexity of submission formats demanded by regulators. Interactive, computer-readable formats such as XBRL, iXBRL and XML are becoming ubiquitous, to facilitate the automatic exchange of information between regulated entities, their regulators and other interested parties.

If your company is like most, you’ll have invested heavily in your finance, reporting and analytical systems, only to find these typically lack the capability to export to any of these new submission formats. Faced with these shortcomings, you may have turned to multiple single-purpose tools or deployed expensive end-to-end solutions to run in parallel with your legacy systems.

Authority Software have produced a suite of products perfect for companies who have collated the necessary data but are missing the capability for visualising, validating and generating the output in the required submission format. It does so using easy-to-understand and user-friendly interface and respects the investment already made in the underlying systems.

The suite includes:

• Report Authority – Financial reporting, XBRL enabled. In use for UK HMRC, Irish Revenue, Danish Business Authority, South African CIPC and soon to be Europe’s ESEF XBRL mandates.
• DPM Authority – XBRL under the Data Point Model methodology. In use for EBA’s CRD IV (COREP & FINREP), EIOPA’s Solvency II QRTs, and other national reporting such as Irish NST, France’s RAN, Bank of England’s Banking and Insurance taxonomies, De Nederlandsche Bank’s XBRL reporting and many others.
• XML Authority – Used to produce XML regulatory returns across banking and international tax areas.

Banking includes MiFID II, AnaCredit, AIFMD, Internalised Settlement Reporting, Form PF, UK FCA Gabriel reporting, Luxembourg’s BCL e-File XML reporting and more.

International Tax includes CbC, SAF-T, FATCA, CRS and AEOI and more.
