Businesses have various obligations to report on their business operations to various parties. Starting in October, the trial aims to verify how a so-called long income statement and balance sheet presented at the detail level of general ledger accounts would serve the needs of various authorities and other users of information.
The focus of the trial is studying the information needed for income tax reporting. In addition, the perspectives of statistics and VAT reporting are included. The standardisation of the data content is based on the content of the Liikekirjuri account chart.
Another aspect of the trial is a standard way of presenting information that would enable the automated use of information in different systems. This trial tests the XBRL GL specification as a file format.
We hope especially for software vendors that offer financial management systems to participate in the trial.
