The final step for fulfilling the XBRL requirement for Germany is to validate and file your instance document. This video steps through the process:
This blog is the last in a series of 4 blogs that step through the setup required for filing reports in XBRL for Germany.
Thanks for the good instructions. What I was missing in the documentations for the German XBRL is a description how to install /connect to the ERIC-Client.
In our test-environment, we prepared the reports, linked the taxonomy, ran the reports -so far, so good, but when validating the reports, we get a message that the latest Version of the ERIC Client has to be installed (Adapter Version: 2.1.1.000.1.112). Thanks for a short hint..
Some information which maybe helps you:
MgmRep (or one of the german XBRL dlls) is looking for the 32 bit version of the ERIC API (EricAPI.DLL)
using a registry lookup in the 32bit hive HKLM\Software\Wow6432Node\Landesamt fuer Steuern\Elster\Eric-xx.x.xx.x
But Attention: You must have installed the VCRuntime12 (2013) too
Then you'll get rid of this message.
But we have another problem at the moment.
