Important:

ACRA has issued Practice Direction No. 2 of 2020 to guide companies on the revised requirements and data elements for the filing of financial statements in eXtensible Business Reporting Language (XBRL) format. The revisions are part of its continual efforts to streamline filing requirements. For most companies, the number of data elements that they need to file with ACRA will be reduced. The Practice Direction can be viewed here.

Timeline for implementation of revised XBRL filing requirements

To allow companies more transition time in view of the COVID-19 situation, ACRA is deferring the effective dates as follows:

  1.     Companies are required to apply the revised filing requirements and data elements from 1 January 2021; and
  2.     Companies can opt to voluntarily apply the revised filing requirements and data elements from 16 May 2020 to 31 December 2020.

Companies that file before 1 January 2021 can continue to prepare and file the XBRL financial statements based on the current XBRL filing requirements.
