Net Identifiable Assets (NIA) consists of the assets acquired from a company whose value can be measured at a given point of time and its future benefit to the company is recognizable. NIA is used for Purchase Price Allocation (PPA) and the calculation of Goodwill in Mergers and Acquisitions (M&A).  The prefix “Net” here means after deducting the liabilities that also come along with the acquisition.

Identifiable assets are assets that the acquired company includes in the list of balance sheet items. The asset amount that is not on the balance sheet is to be put under “Goodwill.” The amount of the goodwill is relative to the amount that an acquiring company paid and is essentially based on the perception and assumptions of the acquiring company. This is the reason that Goodwill is not considered a part of Net Identifiable Assets.
