What is iXBRL and accounts tagging?

iXBRL is inline eXtensible Business Reporting Language

This is a language that allows the presentation of financial information in a computer-readable format. This is achieved by tagging each piece of financial information with a label that identifies it in terms of standard accounting or tax concepts.
