iXBRL Challenges Continue
Even though it has been over 2 years since the implementation of iXBRL in South Africa, companies are still experiencing challenges related to the preparation, tagging, and conversion of their iXBRL filings. Moreover, the Covid-19 pandemic has made way for new reporting requirements to be complied with by businesses established in South Africa. This is why things have taken a turn for the worse when it comes to iXBRL reporting and compliance.
- Compliance with CIPC is Critical
The CIPC has been encouraging entities to reap the benefits of iXBRL reporting to improve their back-end financial reporting process for regulatory compliance purposes. However, after implementing iXBRL mandated by the CIPC, companies are looking for dependable software solution partners.

- Concerns About Liability are Surfacing
With the transition to iXBRL made mandatory by the CIPC, companies express concerns related to exposure to legal liability. The submission of inaccurate financial data may lead to hefty penalties and even legal consequences. This is the major reason why businesses are stringent about outsourcing their iXBRL preparation to experts.
- Creating iXBRL Files is Time Consuming.
Adhering to the accounting rules and the correct taxonomy of iXBRL adds time to the financial reporting process, making it more strenuous than it already is.
