What is iXBRL / XBRL?

The two terms iXBRL and XBRL are used interchangeably, although iXBRL is probably more technically correct to use when referring to implementation for HMRC purposes.

XBRL is an acronym for eXtensible Business Reporting Language. It's a standard for reporting financial data using 'tags' that computers can readily understand and gives the information a definitive structure and unambiguous meaning. iXBRL is Inline XBRL and is a way of presenting a more humand readable version of the computer-readable tags.

How does it impact me ?

HM Revenue & Customs require that all corporation tax computations for periods to 31 March 2010 or later to be filed online in iXBRL format. For smaller companies, HMRC CT600 software has an iXBRL generator built in, however it does not cover every possible scenario that may arise in a company’s Annual Accounts and this is where Managed Service XBRL Tagging providers like ourselves come in.

How do you know what to tag ?
