    Cet article examine l'adoption obligatoire en France des normes IFRS relatives aux incorporels. Une typologie des pratiques comptables liées aux incorporels à la période de transition aux normes IFRS est recherchée. Les résultats font ressortir trois classes d'entreprises affectées différemment par le passage aux normes internationales. La première classe est caractérisée par un changement important avec une forte augmentation du goodwill liée au retraitement d'immobilisations incorporelles comme les parts de marché. Les deuxième et troisième classes se caractérisent par une stabilité. Le phénomène d'inertie (Nobes, 2006) selon lequel les traitements comptables pré-IFRS pourraient perdurer sous normes IFRS est vérifié.
