Spanish term or phrase: bienes inmateriales
in a general balance of a financial year
in the non current assets list
Lucio Agueda
English translation:[concurring with deltra and palomo, with further explanations]
Explanation:
"intangible assets" is the proper term, which covers all of the non-physical assets of a company, including its reputation, goodwill in the financial sense (that is, the excess of the value of a business over the value of its tangible assets), AND items such as patents, trademarks, and copyrights. -- According to the source below, "goodwill" can be referred to as either an "intangible asset" or an "invisible asset," while other assets, such as insurance policies and certain types of overseas investments, are referred to as "invisible." -- Hope this sheds some light!

goodwill


Explanation:
This is a common financial term for intangible assets according to student accountants and professional accountants at the University where I taught in Mexico. It refers to the overall perceived value of a corporate entity. For example, buying Coca-Cola would not only be buying its facilities but its reputation as well--the feelings that go with Coke.
