What is XBRL?

XBRL is a digital format for presentation of accounts after a taxonomical principal.

Taxonomy – a kind of index or template for financial reporting. It is the background for the format XBRL has been developed for. It is a machine readable document, which describes which pieces of information must be included in a financial report. Thus the taxonomy is a list of potential information, which may be included in an annual report.

An XBRL document is a file, which include data of digital accounts in accordance with the XBRL standard and the taxonomy on which the document is based. Such a document is also called an ‘instant’. It is a technical document, which can only be understood by a computer and not an ordinary text file.


XBRL TOP consist of 3 modules


The input module includes the annual account as well as taxonomy. XBRL TOP is based upon that the annual accounts are drawn up in Excel. XBRL TOP is able to customize other spread sheets, ERP-systems or other forms of structured accounting. The taxonomy is thus an integrated part of XBRL TOP. It means that all XBRL Taxonomies may be used for XBRL TOP.

The Process module consists of a “plug-in” (currently developed for Excel), a taxonomy parser and an instant-generator, in which the taxonomy forms an integrated part. This means that the taxonomy may be updated without any adjustments of XBRL TOP.

The output module is an XBRL Instant, which is in accordance with the current XBRL taxonomy.

The XBRl main elements

The process by tagging of accounts in XBRL TOP

Current taxonomy is integrated in XBRL TOP, which means that tagging follows the structure in the taxonomy. It means that XBRL TOP will first be mapped to the superior structure in the accounts/taxonomy (phase 1). With the starting point in the superior tagging will the individual items of account be tagged to the superior structure. An attempt to illustrate the process is made below (phase 2).
