NEW YORK, Sept  12, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Vintage, the capital markets, corporate services and institutional & fund services division of PR Newswire, today announced that Ron Schechter, XBRL Manager, will be leading a hands-on educational program, XBRL Essentials: Creating the Instance Document.  

Schechter and co-presenter Gregg Saunders, lead taxonomist at XBRL US, will be emphasizing the ever-importance of quality and preventing errors. "Quality" has recently come to the forefront due to the SEC's disclosure that they are now taking a more aggressive position towards XBRL enforcement.

Essential points to be discussed include:

  • Avoiding the causes of common errors
  • Units and the Power-of-Ten Scale
  • The results from decimal precision in XBRL
  • How calculation, definition and presentation linkbases are extremely useful
  • Expressing time in XBRL using dates, durations and proper date contexts
  • Senior level review considerations

After his presentation, Schechter and other Vintage XBRL specialists will be offering conference attendees one-on-one insight and demonstrations in Vintage's exhibit booth. Special emphasis will be placed on Vintage's fleXBRL program, the industry's intelligent value. fleXBRL allows corporate issuers the flexibility to match their XBRL filing process to their financial reporting workflow.
