Best Answer

When there is loss in the business the capital of partner can be in negative. Then there is need for addition of capital to run the business and capital brought can still be not enough to make it in credit. Hence the capital will still show a debit balance. However, Additional Paid-In Capital as an account has meaning only for the corporate form of business. Any amount paid by an investor for stock in excess of the stock's par value is recorded as Additional Paid-In Capital. Additional investments by partners may be recorded as contributions in the current period, but are then, like partner draws, closed to the partner's capital account.
