TORONTO, May 9 /CNW/ - This year and early next year after switching to
IFRS, over 300 Canadian cross-listed companies are scheduled to file
XBRL with the SEC for fiscal periods ending on or after June 15, 2011.
Although the SEC has not yet accepted the IFRS taxonomy, most experts
are recommending that companies still prepare in advance for filing
early in 2012. The U.S. is following many other jurisdictions that have
successfully implemented XBRL around the world. As Canadian public
companies complete their IFRS transition, Canadian regulators will most
likely begin a dialogue around an XBRL mandate.
Now is the time to get familiar with the IFRS taxonomy and how to use
This seminar introduces the XBRL IFRS taxonomy- what it is, how it
works, how it is best used. Participants will have a chance to use it
in preparing an instance document to help them understand what would be
involved in actually preparing and filing regulatory documents.
Additional information will be provided on current regulatory rules,
the Global Filer Manual and how companies are addressing the issues
Instructor will be Eric E Cohen of PwC, a co-founder of XBRL and
frequent author, speaker and teacher on technical and taxonomy topics
for XBRL Canada, XBRL International and XBRL US.
