XBRL stands for eXtensible Business Reporting Language. First passed in 2009, XBRL is a global electronic information format designed to transmit and store business information in a machine readable format. XBRL is also referred to as “interactive data” by the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (“SEC”). Companies that use XBRL assign unique, electronically readable tags to all individual disclosure items within business reports. These tags are part of taxonomies developed by market constituents and are publicly available and license free. Taxonomies consist of financial concept definitions in which each business concept is defined and assigned a relationship to other concepts.
