SEC is determined to amend the existing EDGAR system and replace it with XBRL. Otherwise known as data tags, this format intends to promote a more systematic, effective and efficient reporting and analysis of business information. It enables the SEC to look into spreadsheets directly in Excel format, making it easier to compare data between companies. A number of key regulators around the world are already using the said format, while others are still contemplating on adopting it.
The Knowledge Congress is producing a two hour teleconference and webinar to discuss the key features, the advantages and disadvantages, and the impact of XBRL in various financial reporting processes. Experts from the government and the private sector are scheduled to speak in this event.
