MCA XBRL Validation Tool ensures that only those XBRL documents; that satisfy the requirements of Taxonomy and Business Rules, are filed with MCA under section 137 of the Companies Act, 2013. MCA Validation Tool is an important mean for improving the quality of financial information/disclosures in XBRL. Successful validation of the instance document is a pre-requisite before filing the balance sheet and profit & loss account on MCA portal.
It may, however, be noted that mere successful validation of an XBRL document by the MCA Validation Tool does not mean that the provisions under section 129 of the Companies Act, 2013 have fully been complied with. It is important to ensure that this ‘validated’ XBRL document also provides a true and fair view of the state of affairs of the company as per financial statements adopted in the AGM.
MCA XBRL Validation Tool also provides the ‘human-readable’ pdf version of the XBRL document for ease in authentication and certification of the XBRL document being filed by the company to MCA.
