Companies’ initial efforts to apply interactive tags to the financial statements they file electronically with the Securities and Exchange Commission have been fairly successful. But companies face a much bigger challenge this year when they have to start applying tags to the details in the footnotes of their financial statements. By using Extensible Business Reporting Language (XBRL) tags, companies make it easier for investors to compare their financials with those of other companies. The XBRL mandate is being phased in, and the 500 biggest companies, which were required to start tagging with their second-quarter filings last year, must implement detailed tagging for their second-quarter filings this year.
