IASB - Proposed XBRL taxonomy for IFRS for SMEs

The International Accounting Standards Committee (IASC) Foundation has invited comment on an exposure draft of the International Financial Reporting Standards (IFRS) for SMEs XBRL Taxonomy. The Taxonomy is a complete translation of the International Financial Reporting Standards for Small and Medium-sized Entities (IFRS for SMEs) into XBRL (eXtensible Business Reporting Language). The exposure draft is accompanied by a comprehensive review package containing a sample XBRL filing and explanatory materials, as well as illustrative financial statements and a presentation and disclosure checklist. The exposure draft of the IFRS for SMEs Taxonomy is available online at IFRS for SMEs XBRL Taxonomy and is open for comment until 27 November 27, 2009. The IASC Foundation aims to publish the final version of the Taxonomy in December 2009.
