XBRL Filing

XBRL is a computer language used for presenting financial statements online. It enables easy retrieval and direct transfer of financial information to auditors, regulators, and financial analysts.

XBRL enables electronic tagging of data, making it machine-readable. This eliminates manual copying or data entry. Users can easily extract numerical and textual information automatically.
