Intangible Value

Intangible Value

In accounting, the value of an asset that cannot be seen or touched. Intangible assets include things like patents and brand recognition, which add value to a company. It is very difficult to determine intangible value because its liquidity and intrinsic value are often unknowable. Intangible values are sometimes not included in a company's valuation. However, not including them may not express the company's true value.
