iXBRL Tagging for submission to HMRC or Irish Revenue

Whichever country you submit your accounts in, you must now provide accounts that are fully tagged in iXBRL format. Since the mandate came into play, both UK and Irish taxonomies have changed regularly. We can offer you a service or a solution to use in-house that ensures you submit validated accounts.

Seahorse® simplifies full accounts tagging
From the very beginning of the iXBRL mandate, the Seahorse solution - developed by CoreFiling, inventory of iXBRL and providers of solutions to HMRC and other statutory bodies - has offered or full tagging of Word and Excel documents. There are many inbuilt ways in which the software can take the pain out of full tagging, minimising the time taken to apply the full set of tags and generate the iXBRL file.

The power of the learning engine
Seahorse makes it easy to choose the right tag. Principally, the inbuilt learning engine automatically presents you with viable tag options, together with a confidence rating derived from the number of times each tag has been chosen for that particular concept by the community of accounting professionals now using Seahorse to convert their documents. With the arrival of the original - and now the updated - FRS 101, 102 and IFRS, Seahorse’s learning engine has already been taught about the new taxonomies, including the 2018 requirement to include Detailed Profit & Loss in Irish submissions.

Alui's team of tagging specialists are all ex-Big 4 trained accountants - we can offer you a cost effective tagging service, or assistance in using Seahorse in-house.
