IRIS Carbon iXBRL software

ConsultX has partnered with IRIS Business Services Limited (India) and Xpert Decision Systems (XDS), an EOH group company, in delivering an iXBRL compliance solution with their industry-leading Iris Carbon cloud software.

The Companies and Intellectual Property Commission of South Africa (CIPC) has chosen to mandate the submission of financial statements in XBRL format from 01 July 2018. CIPC chose XBRL as part of an evolution of their systems to improve on existing methods of digital financial reporting. The XBRL programme aims to increase automation, improve efficiency, reduce costs and allow greater scope for analysis and use of data.

CIPC selected IRIS iFile software as the regulatory e-filing platform into which South African companies will be required to submit their financial statements in XBRL. IRIS Carbon software was developed on the back of the iFile platform, making IRIS Carbon the first choice iXBRL conversion software for submitting financial statements to CIPC.
