This paper is designed to investigate the theory of intellectual capital and to reveal the importance of intellectual capital for a normal and stable life of each company. In addition, this paper reveals the situation of value added in Lithuanian companies. There is a huge problem – Lithuania’s value added is very small, compared to other European countries.
