Better business reporting publications

We examine the journey to improved communication with capital markets and development of better business reporting frameworks and practices.

Automating Business Reporting 

This publication discusses how technology such as XBRL can be used to automate aspects of current reporting obligations, and how some businesses and government agencies are already embracing the concept. Automation offers several benefits, including the potential to shorten reporting timeframes while lowering costs and improving the integrity of information and the consistency of its delivery.

Automation is an important part of the journey to better business reporting.


This journey will culminate in the development of an integrated report in accordance with the framework under development by the International Integrated Reporting Committee.


Such a report will utilise automation technology to provide information to the capital markets and other stakeholders in a faster and more effective way.
