XBRL (eXtensible Business Reporting Language) is a free and open global standard for exchanging financial and other business-related information (e.g. financial statements). iXBRL, or in-line XBRL, is a further refinement that combines machine-readable tags with legible captions.

Users of XBRL include regulators of stock exchanges and banks, business registrars, income tax departments, and national statistical organizations. Around the world, authorities have mandated or are in the process of mandating that corporate accounts and tax returns be submitted in XBRL or iXBRL format.  This new data format type fundamentally changes financial reporting.

Many companies manually produce financial reports using Microsoft Word, Excel or some other application, and then convert the output to PDF.
