Fewer intangible assets under FRS 102 revisions
05 January 2018
Amendments to FRS 102, released in mid-December 2017, will provide companies with the option to recognise fewer intangible assets acquired in a business combination separately from goodwill. Any excess purchase price over acquired net assets is not automatically goodwill though and intangible assets (potentially multiple) will still need identifying and valuing in many business combinations.
