Since year 2011, Legislation has been in place in the India that requires the vast majority of companies to submit their financial statements in XBRL format to MCA (Ministry of Corporate Affairs).

As a result, companies – especially large companies or companies with complex financial statements – should ensure they have a managed tagging expert in hand to convert their financial statements from a word, excel or PDF document into XBRL-readable format that is compatible with MCA’s requirements.

Why enlist the help of a managed tagging service provider?

Choosing the right managed tagging service provider can make a world of difference to your business. A good provider, for instance, should:

  • Ensure that your company’s financial statements are converted into XBRL format in a timely manner;
  • Undertake testing to ensure that your company’s converted financial statements will be accepted by MCA; and
  • Offer their services at an affordable price.

On the other hand, pick the wrong provider and you may find that you pay too much for a service that prepares a faulty output. For example, you may find that your company’s financial statements are rejected by MCA, or you may even receive tagged financial statements that do not accurately reflect the information contained in the original word, excel or pdf file.

If you’re in doubt about which managed tagging service provider to use, a good rule of thumb is to find a provider with a proven track record of successfully delivering accurate returns to MCA.
