EBR can do this by using a more concentrated form of XBRL. EBR uses this to create a more meaningful classification to the non-financial portions of the financial statement reports. The AICPA’s website states that “these portions include narrative portions of the 10K including MD&A, proxy statements, and compensations disclosure and analysis.” EBR also has special committees that are broken up between public and private companies.

The special committee for private companies is ironically called the Private Companies Enhanced Business Reporting Task Force.
