  • ​​​Contains never-before published research into offshored intellectual property (IP)
  • Offers CFOs, corporate auditors, corporate financial analysts, corporate planners, and economists working in industry practical methods for measuring the value of intangible assets within their company
  • Author is an emeritus professor at Stanford University and a leading consultant on IP valuation

Valuing Intellectual Capital provides readers with prescriptive strategies and practical insights for estimating the value of intellectual property (IP) and the people who create that IP within multinational companies.  This book addresses the crucial topic of taxation from a rigorous and quantitative perspective, backed by experience and original research that illustrates how large corporations need to measure the worth of their intangible assets.  Each method in the text is applied through the lens of a model corporation, in order for readers to understand and quantify the operation of a real-world multinational enterprise and pinpoint how companies easily misvalue their intellectual capital when transferring IP rights to offshore tax havens.  The effect contributes to the issues that can lead to budgetary crises, such as the so-called “fiscal cliff” that was narrowly averted by passage of the American Taxpayer Relief Act on New Year’s Day 2013. This book also features a chapter containing recommendations for a fair and balanced corporate tax structure free of misvaluation and questionable mechanisms.

CFOs, corporate auditors, corporate financial analysts, corporate financial planners, economists, and journalists working with issues of taxation will benefit from the concepts and background presented in the book. The material clearly indicates how a trustworthy valuation of intellectual capital allows a realistic assessment of a company’s income, earnings, and obligations.​ Because of the intense interest in the topic of corporate tax avoidance the material is organized to be accessible to a broad audience.
