Capital Accounts

The capital accounts of a business partnership record the capital contribution of each partner to the net assets of the partnership. The accounts may either:

  • fluctuate to record changes in the net assets, or
  • remain fixed in accordance with the partnership agreement.

If the capital accounts are fixed, a separate current account is kept for each partner. The partnership's current account then records the changes in the equity of each partner.
