IFRS Taxonomy 2011


 International Financial Reporting Standards (IFRS) Taxonomy 2011


The IFRS Taxonomy 2011 was developed by the IASB XBRL Team and was issued on 25 March 2011.

The IFRS Taxonomy is the XBRL (eXtensible Business Reporting Language) representation of the IFRSs, including International Accounting Standards (IASs), Interpretations, and the IFRS for SMEs (Small and Medium-sized Entities), as issued by the IASB.  It contains XBRL tags for IFRS disclosure requirements.

XBRL taxonomies are available for most of the major national financial reporting standards around the world, and the IFRS Taxonomy is intended for use by entities reporting in IFRS.  By providing the IFRS Taxonomy, the IFRS Foundation seeks to address the demand for an electronic standard to transmit IFRS financial information.
