The evaluation and the recognition of the Goodwill raises may controversies, as for example: Is the Goodwill an asset or not?

Therefore, the stakes for choosing one solution, or the other, should not be neglected. It is necessary to analyse the factors that influence the managerial decisions, when choosing a way to record the Goodwill. In this analysis we may use the theory of the Contract Costs. In its own path to eliminate the manipulation options for the published information, the international referential has supported within the past years, numerous revises and modifications regarding the Goodwill accounting treatment. Goodwill in the context of the international accounting convergence processes.
