XBRL Workshop: Filing in XBRL as Foreign Private Issuer with the SEC

XBRL Canada Workshop - September 27, 2017, 8:30 AM – 1:00 PM

Location - Offices of CPA Canada 9th floor, 277 Wellington St, Toronto, Ontario

Background - Back in 2009, the US Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) published a rule (Rule 33-9002) requiring all US domestic and foreign private issuers who submit financial reports using US GAAP or IFRS to the SEC. to provide financial statement information in XBRL (Extensible Business Reporting Language), a format intended to improve the usefulness of the reports to investors. While US GAAP filers have been providing XBRL versions of their reports for many years now, IFRS filers were unable to comply because of the lack of a supported IFRS taxonomy.

Recent Major Event - In March, the SEC announced support of the IFRS taxonomy, a move that will affect both IFRS filers and US GAAP filers. In this session, you will learn:

What you will learn
1. How the SEC's support for the 2016 IFRS Taxonomy means IFRS Filers will be required to provide XBRL, and when.
2. What filers and those that support them need to know about Rule 33-9002, the EDGAR Filer Manual, and other resources to help prepare XBRL files.
3. About Inline XBRL, and plans that may impact all XBRL filers, including experienced US GAAP Filers and new IFRS Filers.

Your Presenter is an internationally known XBRL specialist who has been involved in educating the XBRL community on behalf of XBRL International, XBRL US and XBRL Canada for many years

The Fee - $50
