Can Intellectual Property Assets Really Be Accurately Valued?
The Technical Expert Solution for IP Teams
Intellectual property is an intangible asset. IP is the product of a company’s ingenuity, or even reputation. These include assets that are not physical but are nevertheless protected by law, such as a patentable product, a copyright, trademark, or brand name. IP is a unique creation of the company and a significant driver behind the company’s value. IP valuation works by evaluating the fair market value of these assets. It helps to determine both the value of the IP and the true value of the company, as IP can often be forgotten in regular business valuations. IP often represents some of the most valuable assets that a company has, and therefore, determining its value is highly important.
We are gradually shifting towards a more global economy and it’s safe to say that physical assets don’t always represent the entirety of a company. Firms often invest quite heavily in IP, but there exists high risk of wasted investments. This risk can be counterbalanced if the potential for profit helps to further the success of the company. That being said, if you do not assess the true value of your IP, then your balance sheet won’t properly reflect the property you have, and therefore your company may end up being undervalued.

The methods of which a company chooses to value their IP can also vary depending on purpose, whether it’s for tax, pricing or accounting.
