XBRL stands for “EXTENSIBLE BUSINESS REPORTING LANGUAGE”. XBRL is a language used for e-communication purpose of financial data and business data for business reporting. This is a standardized communication language in an electronic form used to express, report or file the Financial Statements of Companies incorporated under Companies Act, 2013. It is only a method for presentation or reporting of data.
The Ministry of Corporate Affairs (MCA) provides taxonomy for feeding all the financial as well non-financial data of the company like balance sheet, P&L, Board Reports, CSR Reports and other relevant taggings. XBRL is carried out through a software which helps us in tagging of all financial data electronically as provided in the taxonomy in a systematic manner.
