Analysis of Goodwill and Intangible Assets

Difficulty: Advanced


Goodwill and Intangible Assets Accounting Policy

Goodwill

Goodwill represents the excess of the purchase price of an acquired entity over the fair value of net assets acquired. Accenture reviews the recoverability of goodwill by reportable operating segment annually, or more frequently when indicators of impairment exist. Based on the results of its annual impairment analysis, Accenture determined that no impairment existed as of August 31, 2017 or 2016, as each reportable operating segment's estimated fair value substantially exceeded its carrying value.
