Webcast XBRL for IFRS Reporting Issuers

  • Canada Image

May 24, 2017

On May 24, 2017, XBRL Canada hosted a webinar on the SEC requirements with regard to foreign direct issuers using IFRS.

Speakers included Matt Slavin and Walter Hamscher of the US Securities and Exchange Commission, who provided a great overview of the requirements. John Turner, CEO of XBRL International added useful information about developments with regard to inline XBRL (iXBRL) which is being adopted around the world, and being considered or planned by the SEC and ESMA, among others. Inline XBRL allows filers to prepare one financial statement easily readable by humans in the traditional format but containing XBRL tags for computer and analytical use.
