Tagging Changes for Taxonomy Update

May 18th, 2018

 

Since the accounting landscape is constantly evolving, the FASB updates the US-GAAP taxonomy annually – adding concepts, removing others and sometimes restructuring existing sections.

Typically, RDG transitions to the latest taxonomy after the calendar year end filing period is complete and this year is no different.

From SEC.gov:

“The [SEC] strongly encourages companies to use the most recent version of taxonomy releases for their XBRL exhibits to take advantage of the most up-to-date tags related to new accounting standards and other improvements. The SEC suggests that filers consider transitioning to the 2018 taxonomies for the earliest reporting period that ends after March 12, 2018, but not for reporting periods that end before March 12, 2018.”

It is always our goal at RDG to create quality XBRL consistent with the most current structure of the taxonomy and latest industry standards. Because of this, tagging from one period to the next will not always be the same.
