Standard Business Reporting / XBRL
• A Dutch Government initiative
• CCI together with Tax Administration, Statistics NL and Ministry of Education,
Culture and Science
• Keyword: standardisation
• Uses XBRL (based on XML)
Benefits SBR for entrepeneurs
SBR reduces reporting and administration work
SBR offers efficiency benefits: once-only input, several deliveries
SBR improves the quality of reports: less errors, early error detection
SBR assures the reception and processing of the reports
SBR is always actual as far as changes to current legislation are concerned
SBR is used internationally.

Standard Business Reporting / XBRL
Aim and benefits CCI
Aim for the CCI is to eliminate the paper mode: all annual accounts by SBR.
Significant cost reduction:
- No manual processing of paper documents anymore
- No retyping anymore; contents are instantly available digitally
CCI uses the content of the annual accounts (turnovers, profits…) to benchmark
legal persons / companies.
