Inline XBRL or iXBRL

What is iXBRL?

Inline XBRL (iXBRL) is a filing format that merges the traditional HTML file with the XBRL instance document file. The result is a combined file that is submitted to a regulator that contains both the traditional financial statements and the XBRL tagging information. The XBRL tags are embedded in the traditional HTML document, thus removing the need for a separate XBRL file. In other words, filers can prepare a financial report that looks like a traditional financial statement and is appealing to the eye, but has all of the rich XBRL data embedded under the text.
