When it comes to managing financial data, reporting requirements and SEC compliance, no company offers more hands-on experience, top talent and state-of-the-art tools than Merrill Corporation.
With more than 40 years of SEC compliance experience, Merrill was one of the first companies to actively engage with the SEC’s mandated XBRL (eXtensible Business Reporting Language) filing program. (XBRL is a global, open-standard, machine-readable language used to identify and search financial data.) All public companies, including foreign issuers who file with the SEC, are required to submit their financial reports in XBRL format.
Merrill offers a complete end-to-end XBRL solution with services ranging from expert consulting, mapping, tagging and validating to compliant filing with the SEC.
Why choose Merrill?
Our history and expertise showed us early on that only truly rigorous accounting--paired with the best new XBRL technology and processes--would deliver the pre-eminent XBRL experience.
That’s why Merrill begins every project by pairing our clients with an experienced U.S.-based accountant project manager, who stays with you throughout your project life cycle. Merrill has the largest pool of U.S.-based, CPA-level XBRL accountants in the business, each with an average of 20 years experience.
We understand that having “accountants talking with accountants” in a highly collaborative fashion provides our clients with extremely valuable insights into how their statements translate into XBRL. This one-on-one interaction also delivers the best, most usable, fully vetted and error-free data. Your project manager will work hand-in-hand with your team to analyze, discuss, evaluate, interpret and then formulate your data.
Merrill’s team of experts has worked closely with individuals at many companies to enhance their understanding of XBRL and to provide the guidance needed to confidently move forward with XBRL, resulting in successful submission of thousands of live XBRL filings to the SEC. Our talented XBRL team brings years of practical experience working with taxonomies; implementation, documentation and SEC requirements to each project. No other XBRL service provider can match Merrill Corporation’s level of seasoned experience.
