JD Edwards EnterpriseOne and XBRL Reporting

By Karen Brown on August 7, 2014

Do you have requirements to provide Financial Statements and Reports in XBRL format? Are you wondering exactly what XBRL is?

XBRL is a reporting language based on XML. XBRL is specifically used for submitting financial statements and reports to governments and other governing bodies (i.e. US SEC, German Government). Each governing body has different requirements for the types of reports to be submitted and the content of each of them.

Details of XBRL:

  • XBRL Standards are known as XBRL Taxonomies.
  • These taxonomies are the definitions of the documents, formats, and elements that are needed for a specific XBRL requirement
    • Documents are things like a Balance Sheet or Profit & Loss
    • Elements are things like net profit, depreciation expense, statement annotations
  • National jurisdictions have different accounting regulations, so each may have its own taxonomy for financial reporting.
  • Many different organizations, including regulators, specific industries or even companies, may also require taxonomies to cover their own business reporting needs.
  • These taxonomies are governed by the XBRL International Standards Board
    • New taxonomies are continually being added
    • here are 30+ existing taxonomies which are being updated on a regular basis

The Challenges of Corporate Financial Reporting

Many finance professionals face serious challenges in managing and reporting their company’s financial data, despite recent investments in financial reporting systems. Oracle and Accenture launched this research report to help finance professionals better understand the state of corporate financial reporting today, and why recent investments may have fallen short.

The study reveals a key central issue: Organizations have been taking a piecemeal—rather than holistic—approach to investing. Without a vision and strategy that addresses process improvement, data integrity, and user adoption software, investments alone will not meet the needs or expectations of most organizations.

The research found that the majority of finance teams in 12 countries—including the U.K., USA, France, Germany, Russia, and Spain—have made substantial investments in corporate financial management processes and systems over the last three years. However, many of these solutions, which were expected to improve close, reporting, and filing processes, are ineffective, resulting in a lack of visibility, quality, and confidence in financial data.
