Reviewing iXBRL Filings

So, you’ve finished tagging your iXBRL accounts, but what happens if others need to review them off-line prior to sign-off?  Till now that hasn’t always been easy if senior management doesn’t have access to your tagging service.  With Seahorse, it’s a problem solved.

Seahorse lets you export an Excel spreadsheet detailing every line item in your iXBRL document, showing the line item description, who tagged it, the concept label, the confidence level of the chosen tag, the suggestion ranking and whether the tag belongs within the Minimum Tagging Set.  It’s particularly useful for reviewing the consistency of your work and providing an explicit audit log for your filers.
