The rules for filing financial disclosures are ever-changing. From the adoption of interactive data formats to the launch of new electronic data gathering methods, the U.S. Securities & Exchange Commission (SEC) continues to adapt to the Digital Age. These changes bring new challenges for public companies and the IROs and CFOs responsible for regulatory compliance.
Preparing public companies for new SEC rules
Vintage Filings, a division of PR Register, is committed to keeping your public company informed of SEC rule changes, helping you navigate the new world of compliance, and adopting new technologies to streamline compliance. The SEC's rule changes on interactive data include:
Public companies are required to submit financial disclosures formatted in tagged EXtensible Business Reporting Language (XBRL) to IDEA (Interactive Data Electronic Applications), the SEC's next-generation EDGAR database, beginning mid-2009
Large accelerated filers using U.S. GAAP are subject to interactive data reporting in 2010 with all remaining operating companies following in 2011
Mutual funds are required to file the Risk/Return portions of prospectuses in XBRL in 2011
Vintage Filings can help your company prepare now, before the mandatory date, to ensure your first and subsequent live XBRL filings go smoothly. We partner with your internal financial executive to set up your tagging and review your taxomony to make sure it meets your reporting needs.
Streamline XBRL tagging for faster filings
XBRL streamlines communications with investors and regulatory filings. But in order to comply with the new global standard your documents need XML-tagging. Vintage Filings prepares your financial documents for reporting and sharing with the financial markets.
