Hudson Hollister, Executive Director,
Data Transparency Coalition

  • • XBRL has become the global language of finance. It has already been adopted by financial regulators in scores of countries for public companies' financial statements, including by the SEC.
  • • Legislative proposals in the U.S. and elsewhere would expand the use of XBRL. The Financial Industry Transparency Act, which was proposed in the U.S. Congress in 2010, would require the SEC to expand its current XBRL disclosure regime to cover all data reported under the securities laws, instead of just the financial statements. Current legislation in the European Parliament would require both public and non-public companies to report in XBRL.
  • • The governments of the Netherlands, Belgium, Australia, and the United Kingdom are using XBRL to combine regulatory reporting requirements so that companies do not need to report the same information repeatedly to multiple regulators. Forthcoming legislation in the U.S. Congress would commission a study on the feasibility of similar movement in the United States.
  • • The consistent adoption of XBRL and other data standards will facilitate the movement of many legacy reporting and compliance systems to the cloud.

Ariel Markelevich, Ph.D., CMA, Associate Professor of Accounting,

  • • Embracing the XBRL requirement
  • • Bolt-on or built-in approaches to creating the XBRL documents
  • • Integrating XBRL and XBRL financial accounting data into other parts of the company (e.g., managerial accounting, GRC, corporate actions)
