Intangible assets derive their value from the right (claim) to receive cash in the future. Internally created intangibles are recorded at cost. Internally generated intangible assets are initially recorded at fair value. Amortization of limited-life intangible assets should not be impacted by expected residual values. Some intangible assets are not required to be amortized every year. Limited-life intangibles are amortized by systematic charges to expense over their useful life. The cost of acquiring a customer list from another company is recorded as an intangible asset. The cost of purchased patents should be amortized over the remaining legal life of the patent. If a new patent is acquired through modification of an existing patent, the remaining book value of the original patent may be amortized over the life of the new patent. In a business combination, a company assigns the cost, where possible, to the identifiable tangible and intangible assets, with the remainder recorded as goodwill. Internally generated goodwill should not be capitalized in the accounts. Internally generated goodwill associated with a business may be recorded as an asset when a firm offer to purchase that business unit has been received. All intangibles are subject to periodic consideration of impairment with corresponding potential write-downs. If the fair value of an unlimited life intangible other than goodwill is less than its book value, an impairment loss must be recognized. If market value of an impaired asset recovers after an impairment has been recognized, the impairment may be reversed in a subsequent period. The same recoverability test that is used for impairments of property, plant, and equipment is used for impairments of indefinite-life intangibles. Periodic alterations to existing products are an example of research and development costs.

Easton was able to acquire Lofton at a bargain price. it represents the purchase price of a business that is about to be sold. it is the difference between the fair market value of the net tangible and identifiable intangible assets as compared with the purchase price of the acquired business. the value of a business is computed without consideration of goodwill and then goodwill is added to arrive at a master valuation. it is the only account in the financial statements that is based on value, all other accounts are recorded at an amount other than their value.
