XBRL in Switzerland

Schweizer Treuhänder has published the article about XBRL (German, French summary) which I've co-authored with Martin Welser of Deloitte in its August issue. As this is probably the first time that the term XBRL appears in the pages of this august publication, I am hopeful that it will raise the awareness of the profession in Switzerland.

P.S. After years of silence about XBRL in Schweizer Treuhänder, the current issue actually carries two items which conclude that XBRL plays an important part. The article Five years of IFRS accounts in the EU (German) concludes that XBRL is a key element to increase the comparability of corporate accounts under IFRS.
