In January 2015 the Department of Business Development (DBD) under the Ministry of Commerce (MoC), Thailand introduced XBRL for voluntary electronic submission (e-filing) of financial statements of legal entities /businesses for the FY2015 reporting period and onwards. This was done to facilitate rapid and accurate disclosures, vital for transparency, efficiency and accountability.
If companies miss reporting certain disclosures, they are required to file an amendment. Investors, market analysts and stakeholders see amendments as a red flag as registrants are expected to submit complete and accurate information in their first attempt itself. Read how you can avoid this here.
