The first wave of iXBRL implementation
Among the financial reporting trends and developments to watch in 2019 is the first phase of implementation for the Inline XBRL (eXtensible Business Reporting Language) mandate. Although the SEC is phasing in its requirement for filers to use iXBRL for financial statements and risk/return summaries, savvy teams are using it already. Large accelerated filers must meet the mandate for periods ending on or after June 15, 2019, meaning the second quarter for those whose fiscal year follows the calendar year. Be sure to plan accordingly.
