Resumen

CRONJE, Christo Johannes  y  MOOLMAN, Sindiswa. Intellectual capital: measurement, recognition and reporting. S. Afr. j. econ. manag. sci. [online]. 2013, vol.16, n.1, pp.1-12. ISSN 2222-3436.

In the past few decades, the economy has moved from an industrial to a knowledge economy. Consequently, basic factors of production now no longer comprise only natural resources, capital and labour, but also intellectual capital. Despite the shift from an industrial to a knowledge economy, the accounting framework and financial reporting have not changed sufficiently to include intellectual capital. The research problem attempts to explore whether the theory of accounting should be modified for a standardised and comparable approach when accounting and reporting on intellectual capital. To solve the research problem, a literature review and content analysis on corporate annual reports were used. The results of this study indicate that the theory of accounting should be modified to ensure a standardised and comparable approach when accounting and reporting on intellectual capital in corporate annual reports.

Palabras clave : intellectual capital; measurement; recognition; financial reporting; corporate annual reports.
