At the time of change in the profit-sharing ratio, any asset found unrecorded is credited to the Revaluation Account and the net result of the Revaluation Account (revaluation profit or revaluation loss) is debited/credited to the Partners’ Capital Accounts in their old profit-sharing ratio. Ayub must have stated the above accounting practice to Anita to convince her.
