The non-profit community improving U. S. reporting through a free, open standard
A standard to retrieve XBRL data
The XBRL API (Application Program Interface) is a set of endpoints developed to help data users access timely, highly granular, structured XBRL data. This standardized API allows developers and data utilities, with limited XBRL knowledge, to learn a single interface to access data from any database that contains XBRL data, including the XBRL US Database of Public Filings.
In October, 2018, the Data Quality Committee – a collaborative of public companies, providers and data users working to improve standardized financial reporting – approved version 7 of freely-available rules and guidance to help filers using US GAAP and IFRS Taxonomies supported by the US Securities and Exchange Commission detect and resolve inconsistencies or errors in XBRL-formatted financial data.
Preparing a perfect turkey is critical for a successful Thanksgiving. Preparing quarterly financial statements is another activity where “getting it right” is critical. The risk of mistakes has significant downsides, ranging from SEC sanction to negatively affecting your company stock price.
A new XBRL US working group seeks to address standards related to state and local government annual financial reports by designing schemas and XBRL implementation(s) for open data reporting of state and local government actual financial results.
The accounting profession, data providers, public companies, technologists, federal regulators and a growing number of industry groups view XBRL as an important component of transparency in the markets. These organizations support the business reporting standard by collaborating on XBRL US initiatives with other like-minded organizations and individuals.
