Announcement Submission Service

The ISE Announcement Service is an efficient and secure way for you to fulfil your regulatory filing and disclosure obligations

How to submit an announcement

Register for free (If not already registered).

Once registered, prepare your announcement by following our format guidelines:

• document must be submitted in word or PDF format

• include only text - no logos, charts or banners

• use tables rather than tabs to align data/text, e.g for financial information

Submit using the online form and pay (if applicable).

Once submitted a confirmation page containing announcement submission details will appear with a status of 'open'.

How an announcement is published

We review the announcement format and advise if a format change is needed.

Once the announcement is ready, we disseminate it to the market and publish it on www.ise.ie

Your account details will indicate the announcement is 'complete'.

How to pay

Three payment options are available:

  1. Pay as you go - Pay by credit card or PayPal each time you submit an announcement. 
  2. Direct bank transfers if you have a prepaid or bulk account – This requires a pre-approved agreement with the ISE. Contact finance@ise.ie for more information.
  3. Post payment by invoice – will incur a higher charge to cover administration costs.

FAQs

Who can register?

An issuer or an organisation authorised by the issuer can register to submit announcements.

(Note: in respect of investment funds, only the appointed listing sponsor may submit announcements, except in circumstances where an announcement is to fulfil an EU regulatory requirement.)

Can I register a group email address?

Yes. Please include a primary contact name in your organisation when you register. For group emails, the ISE advises users to register an email address that at least two people in your organisation have access to.

I have registered but I cannot logon, how do I activate my registered user account?

Once you have registered as a user, you will receive an email to your registered user email address. Follow the link provided in this email to activate your account. In some cases, your email account may be configured to block certain emails or mark them as spam.

If the activation email is in your spam folder, please ensure that you mark as Not Spam in order to ensure that any further emails from ISEdirect are received to your inbox.

For more information on your email configuration, you may need to contact your IT Service Provider or IT department.

Should I choose file or file & publish?

By clicking on ''file only'' the notice or document is filed with the ISE but not published or disseminated to the market i.e. it does not meet any requirements in relation to the publication of regulated information. By clicking on "File and Publish document" or "File and Publish PDF document", the ISE will disseminate the announcement through RNS and thereby publish the information to the market.

Under what circumstances should debt issuers file documents through this platform?

For debt issuers the filing function on ISEdirect is designed to accommodate issuers who are required to file particular documents with the ISE, typically a requirement described within transaction documentation. Filings of other documentation, including Final Terms, Pricing Supplements, Financial Information and documents to be incorporated by reference should continue to be filed at debt@ise.ie and at the Central Bank of Ireland where necessary.

Where should I send financial statements for investment funds?

All financial statements should be submitted to Funds@ise.ie. In addition any financial statement required to be published under the Transparency Directive should be published through ISEdirect and submitted to the CBI.

Where should I send Financial statements for Equity Issuers?

All financial statements should be submitted to Equity@ise.ie. In addition any financial statement required to be published under the Transparency Directive should be published through ISEdirect and submitted to the CBI.

All charges are subject to VAT.

“File only” announcements will not be published or disseminated to the market.

How is VAT charged, and what VAT number should be included?

VAT is applied at the listed issuer level and not at the level of the entity submitting the announcement. So for example, and in the case of securitisations, it is the VAT number (if any) of the issuing vehicle that is required.

VAT charges depend on the country of incorporation of the listed vehicle or issuer:

• all Irish incorporated listed vehicles are subject to VAT

• EU incorporated listed issuers are exempt from VAT if the VAT number is included in the online submission

• non-EU are exempt from VAT
