DataTracks assists Singapore firms to prepare their financial statements in XBRL format

Singapore, March 10, 2015: Effective from 3rd March 2014, ACRA introduced revised XBRL filing. Accordingly, companies incorporated in Singapore (excluding a few exempted categories) are required to file a full set of financial statements in XBRL format with ACRA. Filing of partial XBRL, an option under the previous XBRL system (FS Manager) is no longer available.

Requirement for Filing Financial Statements in XBRL Format:

To prepare the XBRL financial statements, preparers will need to map information within the financial statements by matching them to a relevant concept within the Taxonomy. This requires an understanding of accounting concepts and knowledge of Singapore Financial Reporting Standards (SFRS).
