SAGE iXBRL Portfolio Update

  1. 1. The iXBRL Portfolio Accounts Production
  2. 2. 2 Sage’s XBRL / iXBRL Roadmap Topic The Sage Approach to XBRL Overview of development methodology and progress Demonstration of Page Production and export to XBRL Q & A
  3. 3. Sage’s Approach to iXBRL 3 • To reduce the level of effort required by accountants down to the click of a few buttons • Sage’s iXBRL solution will come as a module to the existing Sage Accounts Production offering • The iXBRL solution will incorporate a significant reengineering of Sage Accounts Production which will see the generation of financial statement move from the current “Pages” section to a new module - Interactive Financial Statement (IFS) • The IFS interface is designed to be user friendly and is presented in a word/excel like interface
  4. 4. Exactly what will I be required to do? 4 1. Download the IFS/iXBRL module from the Sage website or run from a CD 2. Run the mapping wizard: - The mapping wizard will map the existing chart of accounts to IFS - Where the chart of accounts has been altered, the mapping wizard will allow the user to manually map any remaining nominals 3. Prepare the financial statements from the client’s trial balance as normal in Sage Accounts Production 4. To view the financial statement - instead of clicking pages, simply click IFS 5. The financial statements are generated, with the iXBRL tagging in the background 6. Show iXBRL facility 7. Click submit button
  5. 5. IFS and iXBRL 5 • Fully configurable and customisable financial statements allow the user to make changes without the need to export to any other application • HMRC may eventually require financial statements to be fully tagged as opposed to partially tagged – the 1st April 2011 deadline. • IFS natively supports iXBRL and XBRL from the ground up and will allow fully tagged accounts to be produced from initial release • Our goal at Sage is to limit the impact on how you create a set of financial statements.
