XBRL National Conference for Women Chartered Accountants

The highlight of the event was a presentation and knowledge sharing session on XBRL by Ms. Sneha Rajagopal, Vice President, XBRL Services, DataTracks India. Speaking at the event, Sneha said, "Worldwide adoption of XBRL as the standard for dissemination and analysis of financial data provides an excellent opportunity for Chartered Accountants. There are more than 900,000 companies in India. Eventually, each of these 900,000 companies will have to file financial statements with the Ministry of Corporate Affairs in XBRL format. This provides a great opportunity for Chartered Accountants in practice. Though the technology is relatively new, it is quite easy to understand and implement in a small office. DataTracks provides a web portal where you can convert simpler statements free of cost and more complex statements by using a web based tool. Of course DataTracks would be very happy to do all the work for you for very complex financial statements."

The event was a grand success considering the quality of information that was exchanged, as well as the significant understanding that DataTracks gained on the expectations of women CAs in XBRL services.

DataTracks also had an information kiosk set up during the event for the benefit of participants who required additional information on XBRL services, and also to showcase DataTracks’ range of XBRL services.
