“By thinking of taxonomies as modular ‘building blocks’, it is easier to design and maintain these sometimes complex products.”
This post is by Erwin Kaats, XBRL expert at Logius, on behalf of the Taxonomy Architecture Guidance Task Force (TAGTF). This group is made up of taxonomy experts who work to define best practice and produce reliable and high-quality XBRL International guidance to improve the comparability of data by increasing the consistency of taxonomies around […]
“Reusing an existing taxonomy” – does that make you think of software developers simply using preexisting functions from libraries? Think again! In fact, there is much more to it than recycling code.
XBRL International’s various task forces have been hard at work across 2020 to bring us new guidance materials that help point users of XBRL in the right direction.
When a taxonomy is published it generally comes with supporting documents that help the taxonomy’s implementation – but what exactly should be published alongside a taxonomy? New draft guidance published this week indicates best practice in basic supporting documentation.

Taxonomies need to be easily accessible, and XBRL International publishes guidance that provides best practice recommendation recommendations for publishing XBRL taxonomies.
The Taxonomy Architecture Guidance Task Force (TAGTF) are a group of taxonomy experts who work to produce reliable and high-quality XBRL International guidance to save taxonomy authors time and ensure consistency with other taxonomies. If you would like to help define international best practice in XBRL taxonomies and be recognised for your expertise, then the […]
