Uses and Applications of XBRL

Information cost reduction, flow acceleration, as well as enhancement in usefulness, are the primary goals of XBRL. XBRL offers greater flexibility to investment and credit professionals working with XML-enabled applications, financial data warehouses, and analytical tools.

  1. Enhanced Efficiency

    With the implementation of XBRL, information analysis can be done without the process of re-entry of information and investors can compare different companies based on commonly accepted data formats. Apart from this, regulators can define specific taxonomies [that describe information] and use standard XML and Internet technologies to receive and process that information.

  2. Reduced Cost

    The automation of composition and processing of reports to different stakeholders will minimize costs significantly by cutting time and labor spent manually entering and rechecking information. The XBRL system can help in analysing, selecting, and processing the data for re-use. Therefore, human effort can switch to more value-added aspects of analysis, review, reporting and decision-making. As such, an organisation can expect a cost reduction with the dramatically improved speed.

  3. Data validation and Error Detection

    On top of that, data validation and error detection are the other advantages of XBRL. XBRL provides efficient, validated transmission of information between Web services. Error detection (which is built into the XBRL specification) occurs at the source of the data, rather than at the receiving party. Therefore, the data’s accuracy and origin are traceable to one absolute point within the information chain.
