Magnify®: XBRL and iXBRL document review

Magnify® is a desktop XBRL and iXBRL instance document review tool that helps corporates and their professional advisers to check the validity of filings before submission. It also helps regulators to drill down into the filings as part of their investigations into companies.


XBRL report filing workflow

Accountants use it for HMRC, SEC and other regulatory filings, to ensure compliance and to reduce the risk of subsequent investigation.



Regulator workflow – XBRL document review

Regulators use it to check “soft” compliance and to run custom business rules to identify areas of concern requiring further investigation.
