Abstract

One key finding from the first year of implementing eXtensible Business Reporting Language is that getting it right is critical, since errors or noncompliance can trigger an amended filing and possibly damage a company’s reputation. This article discusses the impacts of the SEC requiring the use of XBRL as well as the steps that are critical to a successful implementation.
