Forbes has always been at the forefront of XBRL development in the UK, starting work on our class library in December 2003.
Our Final accounts production package was the first package to successfully file XBRL accounts with Companies House back in 2005.
ProTax, our CT package, the only package to send XBRL CT computations to the HMRC prior to the introduction of iXBRL.
On the 12th November 2009. Forbes was the first product to be recognised for iXBRL accounts and computations and is ready for live filing.

The software now includes a searchable database of all accounts filed electronically since November 2012. This was nearly 1.3 million sets of accounts at launch and increasing by thousands per day.

This can be accessed through the software or via our portal website
