Make Sure that They are Prepared in the Proper Way
It’s a good idea to create a template to use when you are preparing your financials for XBRL reporting.

You might make mistakes that have the auditors swooping down on your business if you don’t. Use a template and prepare early if you want to stay on top of your reporting.
