Intangible assets are identifiable non-monetary asset without physical substance. The intangible assets are non-physical sources of value generated by innovation (discovery), unique organisational designs, or human resource practices. This paper examines the importance assigned to intangible assets, dimensions related to measurement and reporting of intangible assets and relationship between orientation towards intangible assets and selected variables. The data was collected using a structured questionnaire from 164 practitioners. It was found that intangible assets which are covered under Intellectual Property Law are accorded more important than other intangible assets. Major issues pertaining to intangible assets, in Indian context, were identified using factor analysis. Value relevance of intangible assets and management of intangibles assets were identified as the major issues. Cluster analysis was used to categorize respondents on basis of their orientation towards intangible assets. The results of correlation analysis show that there exist a positive relationship between management of intangible assets and importance assigned to intangible assets covered under intellectual property rights.
