DFIN Delivers Digital Solutions for Updated SEC XBRL Reporting Requirements in 2019


CHICAGO--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- In preparation for the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission’s new Inline XBRL (iXBRL) reporting requirements taking effect this year, Donnelley Financial Solutions (NYSE: DFIN), a leading global risk and compliance company, is helping clients prepare with best-in-class financial disclosure technology that reduces review times by an average of 40 percent and leads the industry in accuracy.

“As we plan for the 2019 iXBRL mandate, which marks a significant step forward in improving data accuracy and establishing a clear roadmap to a data-rich future, we are delivering a three-pronged approach to clients: technology solutions, regulatory expertise that comes from being the largest filer with the SEC and always-on service to ensure we’re providing confidence in the moments that matter,” saidCraig Clay, president, Global Capital Markets, DFIN.

In June, the SEC announced that all filers that use U.S. GAAP and IFRS will be required to comply with new iXBRL reporting requirements, over a three-year period, beginning with large accelerated filers with fiscal periods ending on June 15, 2019. Funds that are currently required to submit risk/return summary information in XBRL will be required, on a phased basis, to transition to iXBRL – beginning with large funds groups in 2020. Within the updated requirements, the SEC will require the use of iXBRL– embedding XBRL data directly into a filing to ensure it’s both human-and machine-readable – to reduce filing costs and increase effectiveness, as well as improve accuracy of financial disclosure data.

“The new mandate is another step forward in the SEC’s focus to modernize financial reporting. As these regulations evolve, we’re in lock step to ensure clients have the latest solutions to meet their needs. We strive to prioritize technology at every turn – whether it’s simplifying the reporting process, producing compliant iXBRL documents more efficiently, or ensuring the highest levels of data security,” said Cynthia Clarke, chief technology officer at DFIN.

DFIN’s technology solutions, such as ActiveDisclosure, provide collaborative, cloud-based platforms to facilitate streamlined review processes, including automated disclosure comparisons, SEC validation reporting, collaboration, commenting and approvals. DFIN, a member of the XBRL US Center for Data Quality (XBRL US), a national nonprofit consortium focused on improving the quality of standardized business reporting.

“DFIN successfully led the first XBRL filing to the SEC back in 2006, and today, we continue to lead the market, with the most accurate filing record in the industry,” concluded Clay.
