2016 US GAAP Financial Reporting Taxonomy

2016 US GAAP Financial Reporting Taxonomy

The 2016 U.S. Financial Reporting Taxonomy (Taxonomy) contains updates for accounting standards and other improvements since the 2015 Taxonomy as used by issuers filing with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC). We encourage all interest parties to review and provide feedback through the FASB Online Review and Comment System (TORCS). Guidance for using the Taxonomy viewer/commenting tool is provided here.

Guidance and Supporting Documents include: A view of the 2014 SEC Document and Entity Information (DEI) Taxonomy is provided for user convenience. Please note that there have been no changes in the SEC DEI Taxonomy since 2014. Therefore the 2014 DEI Taxonomy should be used in conjunction with the 2015 and 2016 US GAAP Financial Reporting Taxonomies.
