SEC to allow inline XBRL filing

  • SEC (US Securities and Exchange Commission) Image

Jun 13, 2016

The SEC has issued an order under the Securities Exchange Act of 1934 that allows certain companies to use inline XBRL to voluntarily file structured financial statement data through March 2020.

The SEC believes that inline use of XBRL will help decrease preparation costs, improve the quality of structured data, and increase the use of XBRL data by investors and other market participants.

The Commission has also updated the EDGAR Filer Manual to accommodate the use of inline XBRL. Additional changes to EDGAR include the discontinued support for the 2014 GAAP financial reporting taxonomy, the 2012 COUNTRY taxonomy, the 2012 CURRENCY taxonomy, and the 2014 EXCH taxonomy.

For more information, see the press release and order on the SEC’s Web site.
