CPD Course: Managing Remote Teams

IAS 38 Intangible Assets

Intangible assets, such as a company’s reputation, brand, copyrights and patents, can make up a significant part of a company’s value. Think of Apple, for example – its unique ability to seamlessly combine design, technology, software and branding has built up its customers’ brand loyalty and its overall brand equity to almost unfathomable levels. 

And, the importance of intangible assets to a company’s value is only set to grow! Emerging technologies, changing business models and the growing importance of the services sector, amongst other things, mean that intangibles are becoming an increasingly important part of a company’s financial statements. Yet, intangible assets are difficult to quantify financially. How do you value something like a company’s brand, for example, in a fair and consistent way? This is exactly what this course tackles!

In this course, you will gain the relevant knowledge needed to comply with the international accounting standard for intangible assets, IAS 38. Doing so will ensure you can account for intangible assets fairly and accurately in the financial statements, painting a clearer picture of your company’s financial position to shareholders, and develop the specific accounting skills that are increasingly sought-after by businesses.

Provides 4 hours of CPD

  • Recognise and measure intangible assets, including how to properly capitalise research and development costs, increasing the company’s reported profits 
  • Accurately record amortisation and impairment to ensure the value of intangible assets is fairly represented over time 
  • Properly deal with the retirement and disposals of intangible assets

Also included in this course are practice questions and answers that will help to solidify your understanding of accounting for intangible assets and the intricacies of IAS 38. All of this means you’ll be well-equipped to apply what you learn in this course to the real world!

By correctly answering the accompanying test questions, you can earn a certificate of completion for your completed CPD hours.
