Numbers of Companies Filing with XBRL Continues to Grow around the World
Approximately 25,000 companies now file with their securities regulators using XBRL – most of which are in the US, Japan, China and India. This is only part of the story, as several other countries require the use of XBRL for securities filings with regulators and other organizations. For example, some 10,000 companies file XBRL in the UK with Companies House. We can expect these numbers to continue to grow as more and more countries see the benefits that structured data brings to supervisors, firms and investors.
