On August 1 of this year, the inline XBRL (iXBRL) requirement for Closed-End Fund (CEF) and Business Development Company (BDC) filings with the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) will go into effect. This represents a significant change for these filer types; switching to an entirely new format introduces an array of challenges that filers will now have to take into consideration (although requirements do vary based on the size and type of company). These requirements mean that subject companies will have to go through the same process of generating the HTML documents that they already do, with the addition of having to tag certain information in those documents in iXBRL format. This process can add a considerable amount of time to the filing process, so filers will need to do everything they can to be prepared. That’s why Transform has made the process as easy as possible.
With Transform your company can generate HTML, tag that document in iXBRL format, validate your work, and submit to the SEC all in one place. Our iXBRL tagging tool is fast, efficient, and most importantly, easy to use. We also help you get started with personalized training sessions so that you know what you’re doing right off the bat.
