The new taxonomy will be used for the first reports under the revised Liquidity and Leverage Ratio requirements resulting from Delegated Acts of the European Commission. In particular, the updated taxonomy incorporates revised reporting structures for leverage ratio, and new parallel reporting structures for liquidity ratio for credit institutions.
Accounts production and tax preparation software are good examples. In environments in which the regulator has moved from legacy paper, PDF or proprietary filing arrangements to XBRL and where these kinds of systems are already in use, existing software vendors will usually update their systems to incorporate XBRL tagging.
This might be in either a completely automated or a semi-automated manner. This means that XBRL documents and reports that need to be filed with the regulator can continue to be prepared, with only minimal changes to existing processes required.
Typically the change obliges the preparer to be aware of and pass! For some companies that need to comply with new XBRL based filing requirements and that historically have relied on very manual processes, moving to this kind of solution is cheap, simple and low risk. Cons The main disadvantage of this approach is that it is only relevant to relatively simple kinds of operations.
If the process of gathering together the information required to prepare the regulatory report is manual, or spread across multiple systems without an automated consolidation mechanism, these kinds of solutions are unlikely to work.
These kinds of tools are sometimes inflexible, meaning that some of the other advantages of shifting from a paper-paradigm to a data-paradigm in terms of performance and risk reporting are unavailable. Outsourcing Description Many businesses find that outsourcing their XBRL filing responsibilities to be the best approach for them.
This typically involves quite close collaboration with a third party expert that works to tag the relevant report in XBRL. In some environments, this process is made more sophisticated through collaboration tools of one sort or another, which allow the regulated company to carry out some of the work themselves, review the work carried out, or in other ways oversight the work of the outsourced service provider.
These kinds of approaches are sometimes a transitional measure, at the beginning of a new regulatory arrangement. Sometimes they work on a permanent basis. Typically outsourcing makes sense in environments in which introducing process change would be difficult or risky. Depending on the kinds of reports involved, especially if they are relatively straightforward this can be a cost effective solution.
For small operations with complex reports, outsourcing is often the only realistic way to prepare their XBRL documents. Cons The disadvantage of outsourcing the preparation of XBRL versions of a report include questions of risk, accuracy and timeliness, as well as variable costs involved.
Some bolt on tools require significant XBRL knowledge and judgement in selecting tags. Others require very little, depending on what is being reported. Companies utilise these tools in order to ensure that they have full control over the process of regulatory reporting.
Pros Bolt on tools allow companies to implement XBRL filing with significant control, while retaining existing report preparation processes and technologies. Some provide very significant levels of automation. Others are more complex but provide greater control.
By their nature, bolt on tools create an XBRL version of a report, based on a legacy format. This can introduce new risks. The use of these tools often requires moderate or significant knowledge of XBRL syntax and conventions. Some of these tools are truly embedded systems, linking via database connections to corporate reporting and consolidation systems, ensuring the consistency and automating their production.
Some tools are in-house. Others are SaaS based. Most are tailored for specific markets and filing frameworks. Some are something of a hybrid offering, including outsourced assistance with XBRL knowledge and tagging.
Cons The disadvantage of these systems is that they are relatively expensive and are therefore mostly attractive to large and complex enterprises.Standard business reporting.
The Standard Business Reporting Program (SBR) is a government program administered by the Treasury, designed to reduce the reporting burden for business.
The original ITS on reporting for resolution plans, published in , were replaced in by a new ITS. This new ITS and the corresponding Data Point Model (DPM) and XBRL taxonomy form part of the EBA reporting framework and will be applicable for submissions of data as of December SEC Reporting Taxonomy *.
The proposed technical and other conforming improvements related to the SEC Reporting Taxonomy (SRT) are available below for comment until October 13, XBRL (eXtensible Business Reporting Language) An XBRL Taxonomy is a collection of taxonomy schemas and linkbases.
XBRL aims to become a worldwide standard for electronic business reporting. This requires taxonomies to present business data in many different languages. Therefore, it is important to be able to create an element that is.
