Revenue iXBRL Mandate
A Closer Look

Ireland’s Revenue began implementing iXBRL in 2013, with Large Corporates Division companies required to submit financial statements in iXBRL for accounting periods ending on, or after, 31 December 2012. Special Purpose Vehicles began to comply with the iXBRL mandate in 2014, for accounting periods ending on, or after, 31 July 2013.

All other Corporation Tax filers began submitting iXBRL financial statements for accounting periods ending on, or after, 31 December 2013. Companies and sole traders with no obligation to submit iXBRL financial statements may do so voluntarily.

Companies with total assets, including liabilities, less than €4.4 million; turnover of less than €8.8 million; and an average number of employees of 50 or fewer do not have an obligation to file iXBRL financial statements.

Modernized Reporting

Modernized Reporting

iXBRL improves the quality of companies’ financial statements by rendering them in a modernized, digital format that is both easier to prepare and use.
Easier Analysis

Easier Analysis

Since iXBRL is a machine-readable format, the data can be understood by computers and dealt with intelligently. XBRL data can be stored, transmitted, and presented efficiently.
High-quality Data

High-quality Data

The iXBRL format makes the production and processing of data faster while reducing errors with the help of validation checks. The result is a highly efficient data value chain.
Towards Analytics

Towards Analytics

The large volume of data being filed with Revenue can be pooled for analytics that allows key stakeholders to study industry-wide financial reporting trends for decision-making.

Revenue requires financial statements to be filed in iXBRL because the digital format makes risk analysis more efficient. Key accounting ratios across companies can be compared and predictive analytical models to identify tax risk can be developed more effectively when financial statement data is captured in iXBRL.

Revenue has not provided a list of iXBRL tagging products or services or a tagging facility for small entities. But filers may use UK iXBRL software or service packages after confirming that they support the applicable taxonomies. iXBRL financial statements must be filed with the regulator through the Revenue Online Service (ROS).
