Australian Reporting Dictionary

The Australian Reporting Dictionary (ARD) will be retired as at the 21st December 2017. You can view the SBR AU (Definitional) Taxonomy using Yeti. Refer to our simple instructions located under the heading ‘How can I view the Taxonomy’

For any assistance, you can contact the SBR Service desk.

Business software with Standard Business Reporting (SBR) functionality incorporates standard terms that are used across government for reporting requirements.

The Australian Reporting Dictionary (ARD) presents these standard terms (or taxonomy) in plain English.

The online ARD supports government and business to find and use standard terms for policy and software development.

The ARD has two main views:

  • definition – a single dictionary term or data element reducing the need to create new definitions for reporting. A single definition can be used across any number of Reports. 
  • report– a grouping of definitions used in context of a report.
