All About iXBRL Tagging | Article Series Part 1
What is iXBRL
XBRL, abbreviation for eXtensible Business Reporting Language, is an XML-based language for tagging financial data that enables business to efficiently process and share their data. XBRL allows the presentation of financial information in a computer readable format. This is achieved by tagging each piece of financial information with a label that identifies it in terms of standard accounting or tax concepts.
iXBRL, or inline XBRL, is a more recent version of the language which allows financial information to be presented in a format that is both human readable and machine readable.
The financial statements which should be converted to iXBRL format include statement of financial position (balance sheet), statement of profit or loss and other comprehensive income, statement of changes in equity, statement of cash flows and Notes comprising of a summary of accounting policies and other explanatory information.
Preparers must tag items in financial reports for which a tag exists in the appropriate taxonomy. If no tag is available, the data concerned should simply be left as plain text.
By when should you file financial statements in iXBRL
There is no universal deadline to file a company tax return. The date is unique to each company depending on the accounting period.The deadline to submit iXBRL accounts as a part of company tax returns is 12 months after the end of the accounting period it covers.
Corporation tax is usually charged for accounting periods for one year, except for the periods when a company starts and ceases, or if there is a change of accounting date.
Companies have multiple options to consider when it comes to preparing their XBRL reports. The best option will depend on the resources available in house.
If you have in-house expertise then you can install a customized software package which incorporates the appropriate taxonomy and allows tagging of data elements against the taxonomy.
If you prefer an iXBRL expertâ€™s help then you could consider outsourcing to HMRC recognised iXBRL service providers like FinTags. We receive financial statements in Word/PDF format and deliver accurately tagged and HMRC-pre-validated iXBRL files.
