Best Practice Reporting Austria

We like to look at tasks set for us from all possible perspectives. That is why we launched the “Best Practice Reporting Austria” initiative in 2012. BPRA is now an established event label for the exchange of knowledge and experience in Austria. As a loose amalgamation of companies, associations or societies, as well as teaching and research institutions, we pursue a common goal: to promote and advance the quality of corporate reporting and, more broadly, financial communication as a whole in Austria.

Checklist for the choice of publishing systems

Toggle Accordion

The key factors for selecting the right publishing system: when evaluating your publishing system, ask the right questions and demonstrate your specialist knowledge. We have put together a list of key questions for you and structured them according to the core graphic in ns.publish.

① Publishing system

  • Does your provider possess an in-depth knowledge of financial and corporate reports?
  • Can your provider demonstrate that it has a high number of customer systems in use?
  • Does your provider possess expert or integrator knowledge in the field of publishing systems and/or does it rely on third-party support?
  • Is your provider independent? Is it required to obtain certain services from affiliated companies?
  • Does it use a tried and tested approach for launching publishing systems (process analysis, implementation, training)?
  • Does your provider have its own modules that offer added value through elimination of manual processes?
  • Has your provider formed technical and development partnerships that contribute to the expansion of functions in the publishing system?

Finance interface

  • Can you link figures to text and carry out automatic updates?
  • Does your finance interface come with an audit trail that logs all changes in a transparent report?
  • Does your financial interface include a dictionary to manage and automatically update the technical terms and translations?

③ XBRL (mandatory for all companies listed in the EU from 2020)

  • Does your system support you to output the entire annual report including the management report as XHTML (in addition to XBRL) as required by ESMA regulations?
