Q: Are intangible assets such as copyright, trademark, patent and goodwill Zakatable?

A: Intangible assets such as copyright, trademark, patent and goodwill are not Zakatable. These assets are not purchased to resell and neither do they fall under productive wealth (Mal Nami). They are similar to other fixed assets such as property, plant and equipment.

And Allah knows best!
