K-Helix: Common reporting software 

From Q1 2014, the FCA and PRA require most banks, building societies and investment firms to report under CRD IV in a new XBRL format. This means that all affected firms will need to procure technology to ensure compliance come the 30 April and 30 May 2014 deadlines.
