XBRL Filing & Conversion – Why outsource to EnterpriseBizpal.com?
To prepare the financial statements documents for XBRL (extensible business reporting language) filing requirements, preparers will need to do mapping by matching line items within the financial statements document to a relevant concept within the ACRA Taxonomy. This requires a deep understanding of accounting concepts and knowledge of Singapore Financial Reporting Standards (SFRS) and SFRS for Small Entities.
For this reason, only people within the company who are trained or conversant in accounting are recommended to be preparers of the XBRL files to ensure the accuracy of the financial statements submitted meets the XBRL requirement to ACRA, this mapping should also be reviewed by the company director before submission.
Since directors of the company are made responsible for the accuracy of any company information that are filed with ACRA, asking someone in the company who is not sufficiently competent with the xbrl conversion and filing requirements as specified by ACRA is risky. Furthermore, the XBRL conversion of the financial statement document requires technical knowledge of the BizFinx XBRL conversion software as well as accounting knowledge.
