XBRL –it’s eXtensible Business Reporting Language
If you have not yet learned about XBRL, our advice is: do it quick! The use of XBRL as a powerful analytical tool for analysts, investors and others is coming our way.
XBRL is going to be widely used in non-USA capital markets countries and regions – in the EU, for example, and in Japan – and recently, a number of US issuers have been voluntarily using XBRL for reporting, and more analysts and investors are looking to interactive data to analyze corporate business and finances in great detail.
The interactive data standard in the news today is XBRL – eXtensible Business Reporting Language -- a powerful, global technology standard for how data is created, distributed and analyzed. XBRL has been adopted for EDGAR e-filings on a voluntary basis by a number of well-known issuers including 3M Company, Dow, General Electric, Lockheed Martin, Microsoft, PepsiCo, and United Technologies. As use of XBRL becomes more widespread, demand for adoption is increasing with investors, analysts, and other data users looking for more issuers to adopt the standard.
Could XBRL be mandated? Stay Tuned – the SEC is on the case!
