South African businesses know that the reporting formats for the CIPC are changing, and with this change, other regulatory bodies will be following suit.

We’ve discussed the reasons that the CIPC has made the move, and the CDM / XBRL implementation that gives you in-house, automated control of your reports.


Now, we outline the basics in a summarised infographic with information from the XBRL webpage, sharing the idea behind it, the way it works, and the functions of the XBRL format.
