Small Company Disclosure Simplification Act of 2018

This bill exempts from requirements to use Extensible Business Reporting Language (XBRL) for Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) filings: (1) emerging growth companies (in general, newly public companies with revenues below a specified threshold); and (2) on a temporary basis, certain other smaller companies.
