Intangible assets as a conceptual problem and the fiction of fair value (in Spanish)

Alfonso Galindo Lucas

MPRA Paper from University Library of Munich, Germany

Abstract: In an institutional framework, intangible Asset Accountancy is a convenient thing for business, but it does not necessarily find a worth theoretical justification. Within perfect information and continuous activity assumptions, it remains demonstrated that the concept of intangible stands for a theoretical problem. In real life, where sometimes information does not exists at all, neither take place other theoretical assumptions, “reasonable value” assessment for those assets becomes an accountant fiction (and a fiscal one) . Another famous problem, that one of fixed capital, concurs with the theoretical idea of none of businesses being profitable.
