XBRL reporting for auditors

In some countries, auditors need to check and sign off on the XBRL file. This means that the auditor needs to be able to read the XBRL file. Next to that it is important that they know that the file isn’t altered after auditor.

Our XBRL Reader allows auditors to do these things. They can convert an XBRL file back to HTML or PDF and check the content. The XBRL Reader also provides a hashkey, which is a unique fingerprint of a file, to make sure that the right file is audited and filed without the possibility of any alterations.

Together with our partners, we can facilitate the entire process of auditing and digitally signing the XBRL files.
