Tagging financial documents for Irish Revenue & HMRC compliance

Tagging financial documents for Irish Revenue & HMRC compliance

What is iXBRL and accounts tagging?

iXBRL is inline eXtensible Business Reporting Language.

This is a language that allows the presentation of financial information in a computer-readable format. This is achieved by tagging each piece of financial information with a label that identifies it in terms of standard accounting or tax concepts.



How KPMG can help

KPMG offers its iXBRL conversion services to Republic of Ireland and United Kingdom companies. Our team of experts have developed a suite of iXBRL solutions and services to help businesses to adapt to the changes in an easy and cost-effective manner.

Since 2010, our iXBRL accounts team, with a local unit based in Belfast, has already tagged thousands of UK company accounts using its XME software which is recognised by HM Revenue and Customs (HMRC) in the UK for accounts conversion to iXBRL. Since Irish Revenue’s requirement to submit iXBRL financial statements in 2013 we have also tagged and converted thousands of financial statements for Large Cases Division (“LCD”) and non LCD companies.
