Accurate XBRL conversions for FINREP reporting from your desktop

Using our robust and reliable XBRL conversion technology, you can transform your CRD IV templates into XBRL format at the click of a button. Simply map your data to XBRL ready templates, and convert into XBRL format from your own desktop version of Microsoft Excel. Live validations show that the data you’re entering is compliant, and there’s a final validation check before the XBRL conversion for extra assurance.

Updates are released regularly to ensure you are always using the latest version of the taxonomy with all the correct tags already embedded in the templates. All data, formulas or links can be rolled over to the latest version of the EBA’s templates using our rollover function.

If you do wish to check your returns again, you can convert your XBRL file back into a human readable format, giving you total assurance prior to submission.

With minimal installation, full compatibility with Microsoft Excel and accurate XBRL conversions, it’s no surprise that Arkk Solutions’ CRD IV reporting tool is the most widely used solution in the UK.

If you are reporting to the FCA we also offer the High Earner’s Report as part of our FINREP solution.
