The Future is Now
What is the impact of XBRL on financial reporting? We now live in the Internet age, yet we still use a paper-based model for financial reporting. XBRL is a move from a “paper-based” reporting scheme, which is unstructured, to an internet “XBRL- based” reporting scheme that significantly improves the analysis, comparability and compliance of data.

Currently, financial reports share one key element: the information within the report cannot easily be reused without first being re- keyed into a downstream application, such as a spreadsheet.
