Potential issues

Some common issues you will need to consider when implementing iXBRL are:

  • How many financial statements need to be tagged and what is the current process for preparing financial statements?
  • To what extent is existing software used in the production of company financial statements iXBRL enabled?
  • What processes and controls over the use of iXBRL should be introduced?
  • What level of testing of the iXBRL tagging will be appropriate?
  • How might the iXBRL tagging of tax returns and company financial statements be harnessed to deliver benefits in the quality of information provided to management?
