Convert your Annual Financial Statements into XBRL format

XBRL and your Company

Did you know that your company may be required to submit your Annual Financial Statements (AFS) into XBRL format?

"The CIPC mandated the digital reporting system for all qualifying entities from 1 July 2018."
(Quote from the Company and Intellectual Propery Commission South Africa Website.)

What is XBRL?

XBRL is an acronym for eXtensible Business Reporting Language.

In essence it is a way to translate Annual Financial Statements into a machine readable format. Each item on a Financial Statement is tagged in a standard way. That facilitates data transmission and easy comparison between businesses.
