Intangible Capital Accounting
AbstractThe new economy based on globalization is increasingly important, which shows the decisive role played by intangible capital in achieving the competitive advantage of companies. However, this intangible capital is the hidden side of a company's value, as it represents the company's intangible resources, which cannot be measured by the financial metrics used to measure tangible resources. Given the functional importance of intangible capital, several models several models were proposed by the literature in order to explain its structure and provide an opportunity to assess it. The term most often used by accounting community is that of intangible assets. Van den Berg (2002) believes that traditional accounting and financial systems have lost the ability to inform on the value of a company, which is expressed increasingly by intangible assets. Experts estimate that intangible assets determine nowadays up to 60- 70% of a company’s value. The investments in intangible assets significantly exceed those in tangible assets, further increasing the difficulty of accurately assessing the value of a company. These are some reflections that cause us to focus on the issue of companies’ intangible capital accounting.
