1993 SNA Update Information - Country comments for issue:
Amortization of tangible and intangible non-produced assets

Issue description
Issue description in [English] | [French] | [Russian] | [Spanish]
The final report of the ISWGNA in 2001 on mobile phone licenses includes a brief discussion of the issue of the amortization of intangible non-produced assets. Can a way be found to show the impact on net worth of the decline in the value of non-produced assets due to production via transactions rather than as other changes in the volume of assets?
