Rule function

This rule identifies those cases where the filer has included the element InterestPaid as a presentation linkbase descendant of the element SupplementalCashFlowInformationAbstract but has not included the element InterestPaidNet as a presentation linkbase descendant of the element SupplementalCashFlowInformationAbstract. The rule reports a separate error for every default value (values with no dimensions) other than zero is included in the instance document.

Problem solved by the rule

This rule supports the recommendations of the cash flow guidance. The FASB codification requires that filers who report their cash flows using the indirect method publish their interest paid during the period net of any interest paid for capital expenses. This represents the interest paid applicable to operating activities and the interest capitalized represents the interest paid applicable to investing activities. This rule helps to ensure that companies use the element InterestPaidNet instead of the element InterestPaid.
