You may have heard of XBRL and wonder if there is any connection to SOX sections 302 and 404.
Well, the answer is …. yes.
XBRL stands for extensible Business Reporting Language and is a global electronic information format designed to transmit and store a business information in a machine-readable format.
The idea behind XBRL is simple. Historically business reports treated financial information as blocks of text like a printed document or a web page. Blocks of text cannot be read by computers. But with XBRL, identifying tags provide each individual item of data with an electronic context. The SEC now mandates XBRL for publicly traded companies.
The XBRL tags are part of taxonomies developed by market constituents and are publicly available and license-free. Taxonomies consist of financial concept definitions in which each business concept is defined and assigned a relationship to other concepts. Companies are required to ensure their tags are accurate and consistent.
This IIA-approved CPE course is built on the foundation of XBRL knowledge and explores the link between the SOX Act of 2002, internal controls, and eXtensible Business Reporting Language (XBRL) requirements.
It will review why XBRL should be considered an internal control issue within organizations and compliance requirements for organizations. Additionally, this continuing education course will help identify how XBRL relates to control point accuracy.
This online CPE Auditing course also outlines the various impact of XBRL and inline XBRL on internal control processes and SOX sections 302 & 404 and why XBRL processes should be part of your 302 and 404 financial evaluation processes. This online continuing professional education course provides valuable insight into how to prepare for those impacts and learn how to address them in detail.
