As we blogged about during the summer, the SEC has started to issue documents concerning XBRL issues. Two of our earlier posts dealt with the special study about the use of extensions and the “Dear CFO” letter about calculation relationships (links are below).
Another event that may elevate the visibility of XBRL issues in the reporting community is going to happen on September 9 at 1pm – the FASB is hosting a 90 minute XBRL webcast to discuss the 2015 Taxonomy, which was just released for public comment today, September 2.
The title of the webcast is:
IN FOCUS: Proposed 2015 GAAP Financial Reporting Taxonomy, ASU Taxonomy Changes, Taxonomy Implementation Guides, Taxonomy Simplification
Interestingly, SEC Staff from the Office of Interactive Date will be speaking.
How may of us are hoping the simplification topic is a major theme?
