The determination of the company size categories for sustainability reporting has consistently relied on the guidelines outlined in the Accounting Directive 2013/34/EU. The criteria specified in the directive for assessing a company’s size category have remained unaltered since 2013 when the European Commission approved the adjustment of these thresholds. This modification led to the reclassification of micro, small, medium, and large enterprises.

The table below displays the modified financial thresholds in comparison to the ones from the previous period.
