I. Introduction

1.1 Background

Developments in science and technology is growing rapidly in this era of globalization has intensified competition in the business world. Thus, to maintain the existence of the business world, companies must quickly change its strategy based on labor (labor-based business) to businesses based on knowledge, the main characteristics of science (Kuryanto & Muchamad, 2008). Companies that implement this knowledge based businesses tend to create value based on intangible assets (intangible assets) and intangible resources rather than assets (Chen et al., 2005). Companies are increasingly emphasizing the importance of knowledge assets (knowledge assets) as a form of intangible assets (Thaib, 2013). This is because business people begin to realize the ability to compete not only in the ownership of tangible assets, but rather the innovation, information systems, organizational management and its organizational resources (Solikhah, 2010).

This is because the financial statements are not able to present the relevant information regarding the amount of the value of the intangible asset so that it can influence corporate policy. Failure to report knowledge of traditional accounting assets can be seen from the phenomenon that occurs in some large companies such as knowledge-based Microsoft, Coca Cola and Intel, which are not carrying an intangible asset on the balance sheet of these companies so that there is a very significant difference in value between the book value assets with a market value of these companies (Sawarjuwono & Augustine, 2003). The existence of a significant difference in value can be concluded that the financial statements are failing to reflect the true value of the company so it cannot be used in decision making (Kuryanto & Muchamad, 2008).

Limitations of financial statements in explaining the value of the company pointed to the fact that the source of economic value is no longer in the form of raw material production, but the creation of intellectual capital (Ulum, 2008). …
